Welcome to Elk Grove
Located just 15 miles south of Sacramento, Elk Grove was founded in 1850 along a stage coach route. The city's proximity to Sutter's Fort, the epicenter for the California Gold Rush, provided an influx of gold miners during its early days. The area remained mostly farmland until the 1980s, and Elk Grove was ultimately incorporated as a city in 2000. Today it is the second largest city in the Sacramento region. Agriculture was an early industry here and remains strong, along with high technology, professional service, and commercial and retail enterprises. Today's top employers in the region include the local unified school district, Apple® and Kaiser Permanente®. If you're looking for ways to enjoy the great outdoors, you'll find more than 90 parks, as well as numerous trails, including Laguna Creek Trail, Franklin Creek Trail and Foulks Ranch/Laguna Greenbelt. Here are a few more glimpses into this beautiful city:
- Old Town Elk Grove. Also called Main Street, this is the spot of the original downtown district. Many of the buildings here date back to the 1800s, including Bob's Club, once an old-time saloon, and the only building to have survived an 1892 fire.
- Elk Grove Creek Trail. This two-mile paved trail hugs its historic same-named creek and offers a scenic retreat among lush trees and wildlife.
