Orangevale... the little town in a popular part of California. Orangevale is much calmer than Folsom or Granite Bay. Everyone living here feels like they belong. I love it because of the nature, from dozens of horses to the screaming peacocks across my yard. You never have to worry about setting an alarm because of the rosters that crow as soon as the sun comes up. I can't forget about Downtown Orangevale, which was labeled "Joke of the Town" on ABC 10. With all this being said about Orangevale, we are still proud. I will always love this small town.

The homeless problem taints Orangevale. While there are nice streets and some decent amenities, the hostile homeless on their bikes are constantly driving in front of cars, and zooming in and out of apartment complexes to dumpster dive. Rents are rising and the quality of life is deteriorating. Empty storefronts and strip malls create blocks of blight. It took the locals over a year to get a crack house torn down.
I have lived in Orangevale since I was 10 years old and my experience here has been fairly average. I feel safe in my neighborhood and the surrounding area, though not all drivers on the road practice responsible driving. My sister and I were in a wild car accident that caused the other driver's car to roll over multiple times. Everyone involved walked away unharmed but it was a bit traumatizing.
