People quite often ask how Pocket got its namesake.  Just take a look at the Sacramento River and the explanation becomes quite evident… The river meanders in the shape of a pocket, cradling this popular neighborhood. Built in the 80’s and 90’s, the homes vary in style from Ranch to Mediterranean, Contemporary to Tudor.  While there are many gated communities, Riverlake is the predominant gated neighborhood showcasing upscale homes and River Lake where you can sail or get a little paddleboat exercise. Enjoy the outdoors with jogging and bicycle trails along the canal and levee.  Garcia Bend Park is a local favorite for picnics, soccer or a little tennis.  At the end of the day, relax on your back porch and relish in the Sacramento Delta breezes.  It just doesn’t get much better!

Developed in the 1960’s from rural farmland, Greenhaven stretches from Riverside Boulevard off of Interstate 5 to Florin Road, between Freeport Boulevard and Interestate 5, with a little give and take from the South Land Park Hills and Pocket neighborhoods.  Its shining features are a Lake Greenhaven and a picturesque greenbelt between Greenhaven Drive and Havenside Drive. Homes in this neighborhood feature not only ranch style homes, but contemporary and custom homes as well.  Many enjoy lake front property and some even back up to the Sacramento River.  Streets are wide and meandering in this classic 1960’s neighborhood.
