Don't buy the hype! look at Crime mappers website for the real truth! I have lived in River Park and Land park for years and North Oak Park, Curtis Park post office. Most of the people here are not renters maybe 20% and they are McGeorge students, Med center is more medical.
The aras as safe as any area in Sacramento if you can put down the cliches and just look at the stats
Much more crime in the "better" areas!
