"Sacs Version of Oakland"

South Oak Park is pretty much the same as Central Oak Park in terms of being deep in gangs, except it is even worse here. It is pretty much a mess—boarded up houses, empty lots, police actions at night time. It is pretty much like Sac’s version of Oakland. Apparently putting the name “Oak” in a name makes it a magnet for gangs and crime.

Houses are inexpensive since few people really want to set down roots here but many of the homes are very old and definitely require fixing.

I pretty much would simply recommend avoiding this area if at all possible.
  • Dirt Cheap Homes
  • Close to the Freeway
  • Lots of Fixer-Uppers
  • Gangs
  • Ugly Old Homes
  • Run Down
