Curtis Park is a community of older established homes, each home unique in character, clean and well kept, very nice surrounding. Near freeways, parks, schools. As far as it being a safe neighborhood I would direct you to the crime map report http://crimemap.sacsheriff.com/cvc
I would suggest you drive, walk the area at various times of the day to ensure your satifaction as to what makes you feel safe.
I say to you Sir, we don't know the day nor the hour that crime can strike, but we must always be vigilant. Be trully apart of the community that you choose to reside in, be involved with neighorhood watch. Yes, be your neighbors keeper, kept your family, home and property safe.
Happy Home shopping!
