Southeastern Sacramento Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Southeastern Sacramento is a middle class neighborhood located near the old Packard Bell Headquarters. Homes are single family, mainly two-story, with modern landscaping. Some homes in the neighborhood have private pools. This is a bonus for residents dealing with hot, arid temperatures of summer.
The Southeastern Sacramento area was built during the 1980s to early 2000s. It is a family community, centrally located, but also with a distinct military flair. Sacramento’s Army Depot, one of California’s historic military museums is only a few miles east. Part of the Army Depot’s acreage was leased to Packard Bell for their headquarters, only to become the Packard Bell neighborhood when the facility closed down.
Nostalgia from the past is easily found by those interested in exploring old airfields in Southeastern Sacramento. Skyline Airport, Perkins Airport, and Sacramento Sky Ranch were all private airports that served the area in the 1940s and 50s. Today, only archives, maps, and pictures remain.
Newer features like parks with basketball courts, soccer fields, and skating areas have been developed to please current recreational trends among residents. Baer Park is a short walking distance away to the south, while Granite Regional Park, which includes a separate dog park, ponds and wetlands, and a cross country running trail, is a few minutes’ drive to the north. Both parks are great for family picnics and outings.
Sacramento has lots of things to do. It is a river town, making fishing and water sports favorite pastimes among locals and visitors. Both the American and Sacramento Rivers are close by. Whether dining in local restaurants and overlooking the banks, walking or cycling on designated waterfront paths, or playing in the rushing water, Sacramento residents enjoy the benefits of rivers in their midst.
