This is an older neighborhood with many, many mature trees and a huge greenbelt running through it. The park-like atmosphere seems to go on for miles. At the other end is the Sacramento river. Families have lived here for two and three generations.

Greenhaven is a somewhat safe place to be. In the past, I thought Sacramento, Greenhaven was the safest place to be in the whole world- that was when I was a little kid. Now I realize there are many dangerous things out there and the only thing holding me together are my family, friends, and my teachers. However, usually things are alright until after midnight, things get sketchy. As long as the light shines, there is light. Afterwards, prepare to lock yourself in your house and don't come out even with company.
I love the Greenhaven area; the trees make the area so beautiful and warm. The area is quiet, and it is so clean and beautiful. The area is expense, but I'm willing to pay that if it means I have peace of mind. The schools, shopping and night life, is excellent also.
