Nestled between Carmichael and Orangevale, Fair Oaks is located just 20 minutes northeast of Downtown Sacramento. Fair Oaks is a community known for rolling hills and tucked away residences. Homes are quaint, built in Craftsman-style (some over 100 years old). A home in Fair Oaks could be an original farm house with rich historic detail, a bluff home on the river with breathtaking views, or a recently constructed home with a modern, contemporary feel.
The heart of the town centers on Old Fair Oaks, a historic and charming area founded in 1895. Distinctive store fronts, antique shops, the Amphitheatre, and local artists all contribute towards making Old Fair Oaks truly unique.
Fair Oaks also offers a wide variety of programs and recreation facilities for everyone from kids to senior citizens. Residents have access to nine different parks (125 acre) maintained by the district, equestrian ranches, basketball courts, and more. For outdoor enthusiasts or family outings, the American River Parkway and Sailor Bar Park is minutes away and offers fishing, kayaking, and river views visible from the Fair Oaks Bridge. The Plaza and Village Park complex is the location of the community clubhouse, outdoor amphitheater and crafts building. Residents can enjoy community events including Taste of Fair Oaks, Fiesta Days, and Thursday night Concerts in the Park.
