"Central Gangland"

Just like North Oak Park, Central Oak Park is the beginning of Gangland Sacramento. South Sacramento pretty much has the rap of being a heavy gang area, and despite the recent additions of the UC Davis Medical Center and an influx of funds to try to revive this area of Sacramento, the gangs have pretty much remained entrenched.

The neighborhood is largely made of run down looking California bungalow style homes, with faded lawns and fenced yards.

Because of the gang problem, you will also find the least expensive houses in all of Sac with more than half of the homes in the area going for less than $100K.

But who is willing to come live in an area where you have to fear for your safety every day of your life?

Not for me, that’s for sure.
