Gold River is a prestigious planned community just outside metropolitan Sacramento in Northern California. Gold River Community Association (GRCA) is the master association for 25 separate sub associations, also known as villages, within the community.
Over 900 acres of land adjacent to the American River has been converted into Gold River. It is an innovative community, combining the finest in contemporary living with the colorful heritage and natural beauty of the area.
In the late 1970s, Natomas Real Estate Company began the preliminary planning on the property which, in 1980, was named Gold River. Their goals were to develop a community that would be a desirable place for people to live and where the property values would be protected. In order to accomplish these goals, they decided that a strong community association was necessary. The Gold River Community Center was built and opened the summer of 1990.
Gold River offers many individual and distinctive neighborhoods; all featuring creative concepts in design and energy conservation. Comprising of 25 sub associations, often referred to as villages, and 2,735 lots, sizes of homes are varied to meet a broad spectrum of family needs; there are single family homes along with townhouses and condominiums for active or retired people who choose not to maintain a home. In short, there is a neighborhood in Gold River to meet the lifestyle of almost everyone. As the needs of residents change, they can move from one neighborhood to another without uprooting their families. Children can still attend the same schools, friendships can be maintained, and overall routines need not be disrupted.
