Granite Bay is often thought of as the Beverly Hills of the Sacramento-Roseville area. While mainly comprised of posh neighborhoods and gated communities, the area is home to a variety of diverse houses of all sizes and styles. Situated on the northwestern shore of Folsom Lake and 25 miles from Sacramento, Granite Bay cultivates an active lifestyle and welcomes families with its many parks and recreational opportunities.
The majority of Granite Bay falls within the Eureka Union School District and Granite Bay High School. Eureka Union consistently holds the highest academic performance index of any district within 50 miles of Sacramento and is a major draw for the community. Families also fill their time and find support through a number of equestrian centers located nearby, as well as a MOMS club, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, youth soccer, Junior Grizzly Football and Cheer, and little league. The Granite Bay Library offers weekly story times for preschoolers, as well as toddlers.
Though some consider the area built-out, the lots are large and many still consider it a fairly rural area, with rolling hills and hiking and biking trails a trademark of the community. Despite its proximity to endless natural playgrounds, a number of parks, including Miners Ravine Nature Reserve, Treelake Park, Douglas Ranch Park, Sterling Point Part, Ronald L. Feist Park, collectively offer a number of playgrounds, picnic areas, tennis courts, and soccer and baseball fields.
Roseville’s endless shopping options are just minutes away. The Galleria and Fountains alone offer just about everything one could need, but nearly every other nationally-known store you can imagine are all centrally located within just a few miles. Even with all the retail possibilities close by, Granite Bay locals still head to Quarry Ponds Town Center for tappas, Thai food, Peet’s Coffee, and Capitol Cellars wine bar.
