I have lived in Willowcreek since 2000 when most of the homes were constructed and have loved it ever since. The area is great for raising families as it has a great sense of community and is overwhelmingly caring and diverse. It has always felt like its own secluded pocket of Natomas, but the incredibly short distance to I-80 and I-5 makes this simple, quiet area feel very close to the immense culture of nearby downtown Sacramento and Davis - although traffic on all Sacramento highways is slowly increasing. This prime location makes it easy to quickly jump on the highway and head towards Tahoe or SF. Natomas is starting to develop more, and I hope that Willowcreek retains its rare small town feel in such an urban area.

This area is great and it's obvious that the people in the community care about their homes. We all work together as a community to keep each other informed of what's going on along with safety/crime issues if any. I would definitely recommend living in this area.
This neighborhood is better than average, there's hardly ever crime and the atmosphere is always peaceful and calm.
