Rendering of the future ‘Bridge District.’ The neighborhood is seen as becoming a dense, urban, people-friendly space that celebrates the river -- and has the “River Walk Trail” at left along the Sacramento River. Shown are Raley Field, Tower Bridge, and the I St. Bridge.

 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)

  1. What is really sad is that the first development that is scheduled to go in the “Bridge District” is 70 units of low income housing. Will that set the tone for what follows? We have property that butts up against one of the cities last low income housing projects and it is a hot mess and trouble ridden. West Sacramento has enough “low Income.” How about some more affordable senior housing?

  2. […] The ribbon was cut on the south extension of the Riverwalk yesterday. It is now officially open to the public, I hear it is very pretty in the evening when the lights are on. Pictured left during the ribbon cutting are our Mayor Christopher Cabaldon, Councilman Chris Ledesma, Councilman Mark Johannsessen and other officials other agencies involved in the project. If you go to the photo link below you will also see a artist rendition of what ‘The Bridge District” may look like when complete. Read more about the ribbon cutting here on westsac.com […]
