Lincoln Crossing is a newer master-planned community located in the small town of Lincoln near the Sierra Foothills. It’s the quintessential family community – kids and families walk and ride bikes to neighborhood parks and ice cream shops while the convenience of everyday amenities and open trails lie just beyond the spacious streets and sidewalks. Neighborhoods are comprised of upper middle-class homes and townhomes with Lincoln Crossing Elementary (a California Distinguished School) and Peter Singer Park at the epicenter. The five-acre park is adjacent to the school and includes baseball and softball fields, soccer fields, a play structure and picnic tables. Auburn Ravine Park is just around the corner and is home to an off-leash dog park and network of multi-use trails.
Numerous shopping centers are within walking or biking distance (Lincoln is an extremely bike-friendly town), offering coffee shops, hardware stores, grocery stores, salons, and yoga studios. Access to Highway 65 is less than two minutes away and the recent opening of the bypass eases commutes to Roseville and Sacramento.
The strong community vibe and neighborhood association is one of the major draws of the community. The association’s community center (The Club at Lincoln Crossing) has a fitness center, game room, two pools, spa, and banquet room. Numerous activities are held on site– everything from teen dances and fitness classes to community garage sales and family bingo.
Historic, downtown Lincoln is also just a short drive or bike ride away, and embodies an All-American family-friendly culture, showcasing Fourth of July and Christmas parades. From the convivial neighborhoods, small-town vibe, and proximity to both the mountains and urban areas of Sacramento and the Bay Area, it’s no surprise Money Magazine listed Lincoln among the top 100 cities to live in the United States. It was also named an All-American City by the National Civic League in 2006 and was the fastest growing city in California in 2010.
