Woodlake Reviews

2
Woodlake is a low crime, high income neighborhood of historic homes and larger lots. It's a little bit Curtis Park meets a little bit Sierra Oaks with the progressive vibe of East Sac and Curtis Park, but the larger lots and more suburban tone of Sierra Oaks.

The average sale price of a 3/2+ in 2018 was $475,000 and values are growing. Woodlake attracts mostly professionals and Capitol types. There are a lot of LGBT families.

The local public school meets the needs of some families in the area but Woodlake is especially attractive to families planning on public charters (Washington STEAM (10 min away), private schools (St. Ignatius (10 minutes), St. Michael’s Episcopal (15 min), Country Day (15 min), St. Francis HS (15 min), Jesuit HS (18 min) and families without children at home.

The scores on this site for Woodlake seems to be based on census tract data that includes areas outside the neighborhood and are not very representative of the neighborhood.

Woodlake is one of the absolute best neighborhoods in Sacramento. I used to live in East Sacramento and Woodlake has the same charm, beautiful houses, and great people. I like Woodlake a little better because its not all crammed together the way a lot of East Sac is.
