Upper Land Park Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Land Park Neighborhood was originally settled by John Sutter and had the original name of Sutterville. Sutter’s dream was to build a city that would be the civic and cultural center of northern California. Instead, Land Park became a beautiful and elegant area of tree-packed neighborhoods with wonderful 1920s to mid-century homes, many of which have elements of the coveted craftsmen style. The Land Park neighborhood also enjoys a bounty of mature trees.
