Located in the heart of midtown, Winn Park is one of several unique neighborhoods comprising this very lively district of Sacramento. The juxtaposition of stylish craftsman homes, bungalows and Victorians, with funky boutiques, coffee shops, galleries and restaurants, create a lively combination of small town charm and urban energy.
Winn Park is bordered by J, R, 28th, and 29th Streets. J Street, in particular, is a bevy of activity, and is home to the popular midtown farmers market every Saturday morning. The neighborhood has been recognized as one of the most walk-able nooks in Sacramento, as well as being a bikers’ paradise (even the farmers market has free bike valet).
Sacramento is known for its proliferation of parks, and the bustling area of midtown is no different. The eponymous Winn Park gives this pocket of homes its moniker. The small, three-acre neighborhood park is an oasis of shade with benches, walkways, picnic areas and a fenced playground area for tots.
The area was named after Major General Albert Maver Winn, president of Sacramento’s first city council. Today the area is a bustling borough of empty nesters, hipsters, affluent professionals, artists, and families thriving off the many cultural and recreational offerings midtown is known for.
Popular gathering spots include the boutique coffee roaster Old Soul Co., Lowbrau Bierhall, and the Porch Restaurant. Whether it’s the theatres, pubs, parks, music, or shopping, residents find little reason to wander from their own little private city.
