Heritage Oaks Park is one of West Sacramento’s newest parks, with planning and design having started in 2017. It’s a 9-acre property of Valley Oak and various other trees, hence its namesake. 

The park’s current amenities include a shaded play structure area, picnic tables, restrooms and 40 parking spaces. 

It also became home to Tree Top Sac in 2018, which is a tree top adventure park. Attendees will be able to walk through the canopy while traversing through obstacles such as balancing ropes, bridges and nets. 

For those interested in Tree Top Sac, its website has a step-by-step explanation of how the activities work. There are daily and season passes for the park, which also offers evening climbs. 

Heritage Oak Parks is located at 1300 Lake Washington Blvd.
