On November 28, 2012, the California Natural Resources Agency awarded the City of Sacramento a $1.5 million River Parkways grant for Sutter’s Landing Park to restore habitat and improve river access from Midtown to the American River Parkway. The American River Parkway is one of the most important contiguous habitat and recreation open spaces in the region and state, attracting millions of visitors annually.
The City will use the funds to extend the multi-use Two Rivers Trail three-quarters of one mile from the Park east to the Union Pacific mainline tracks next to the Business 80 highway. (Currently, the City’s Two Rivers Trail starts at Tiscornia Park and ends at State Route 160, a total of two miles.) At the end of the trail, there will be a turnaround loop with interpretive panels and seating. The City expects a future phase will connect the trail from the railroad tracks to Sac State University.
