Northpointe Park sits between the McClellan Air Force Base and the Sacramento International Airport on the northern edge of the City of Sacramento. To the north are vast stretches of open farmland. On the southern border is a combination of residential, industrial, and recreational space that lies along Interstate 5. Discovery Park, a 160-acre bit of public open space, is the biggest draw, offering hunting, swimming, bird-watching, and camping.
The neighborhood itself is densely populated and has a high percentage of apartments. Northpointe Park is a newer district, with most homes being built after 1995. A few homes date back to the early 1900s, many of them farmhouses preserved when the acreage around them was developed. The area is fairly quiet and many properties have a nautical flair, perhaps a nod to the Azevedo River that is just past the western edge.
The Regency Park Elementary School is within the boundaries as is the private Giggles’n Wiggles Kindergarten Preparatory School. Natomas Middle School and Inderkum High School are just outside the western border. This is also the home of the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, found on the southern edge of Northpointe Park. The closest house of worship is North City Church.
South of the neighborhood is the Natomas Marketplace Shopping Center, home to Wal-Mart, the Home Depot, PetSmart, and the 16-screen Regal Cinemas Natomas. The closest restaurants are on Natomas Boulevard. These include the usual fast food outlets, along with the locally owned Five Guys Burger & Fries and the Bella Bru Cafe. ARCO Arena, home to the Sacramento Kings basketball team, is also on Natomas.
