Over all I have had an average experience in my neighborhood. There is not a ton of fun activities and interesting places to go. It is along the river and relatively safe. I have lived here most of my childhood but we’ve moved around many times, and seemed to always end up back here. I am happy to say that I got to experience my time here in Sacramento living in the college glen area!

I actually really love the neighborhood that I live in. The surrounding neighbors are very friendly, we never have issues with partying or loud music, and we are just a short drive away from a Raley's!
College Glen is a nice neighborhood for families. There are a lot of friendly people in the neighborhood, and there are a few family-friendly parks nearby that offer seasonal sports such as little league and youth soccer clubs. It's overall a nice community and a good option for families.
