Revitalization comes to Sacramento’s Oak Park neighborhood

Sacramento, California’s Oak Park neighborhood was once one of the most popular neighborhoods in Sacramento with local shops and businesses within walking distance from homes.

Then Oak Park experienced a downturn in the 1960’s as many businesses and homeowners left.

Now the neighborhood south and east of Downtown Sacramento is experiencing a revitalization.

An old building will soon house a new space, home to a new taqueria run by Dave Shnetz and his Bay Area restaurateur brother Tom.

We love the character of the area, it’s just something, it’s a unique area,” he said.

Tom has opened five top restaurants in the Bay Area, also in areas going through revitalization.

Now, along with retail and restaurants, there are new condos and townhomes in Oak Park.

All bringing an economic boost to the area that many say is just beginning.
