Hagan Park

The walk route will take you thru Hagan Park and onto the Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail (American River Bikeway) alongside the American River. You'll cross the Harold Richey Memorial Bridge to the opposite side of the river and travel through nature areas and shady parks. Visit the Soil Born Farms to see one of our urban all-natural farms. Strollers can use the paved bike trail whenever the walkers are following the dirt trails.
Hagan Park Patch
Limited edition Commemorative Patch (design above) available for $4.00 each. A limited number are ordered and once they’re sold, that's it. There will be no re-orders.

Ice Cream Walk!
August 1 & 2, 2018

Vic's and Gunther's signs
Sacramento’s warm summer nights are the perfect opportunity to eat ice cream at its two locally owned ice creameries in the Land Park and Curtis Park neighborhoods: Vic's and Gunther’s. If you didn’t get enough on the previous night or if you couldn’t make it, there is another opportunity on Thursday morning to sample the tasty treats at these creameries. The walk between the two is a lovely shady stroll through upscale neighborhoods with classic 20's and 30's homes. Join the Sacramento Walking Sticks for this annual fun event and bring the family!

Hidden Parks of Carmichael
September 22, 2018

Walk through older established Carmichael neighborhoods to three different parks. Two of the parks are nicely developed with trails and playgrounds. The third park is a very large nature area that has not been developed but was planted with numerous eucalyptus trees years ago so that the forest is like being in Australia.
Information on the Hidden Parks of Carmichael event on the AVA website.
Start at SaveMart Parking Lot, Crestview Village Shopping Center, 4708 Manzanita Ave, Carmichael, CA 95608
