The City of West Sacramento has opened a new recreational walkway, the River Walk Trail, along the picturesque riverfront south of the Tower Bridge, parallel to the Sacramento River. The paved trail, nearly one mile in length, creates a “front door” to the City’s new Bridge District development now under construction. (info courtesy of ART SCHROEDER, City of West Sacramento)
