A Small Tour in the County of Elk Grove

The county of Elk Grove is all land with no part covered by water. Found in 1850, this county was the home base for the gold miners during the ‘The Great Californian Gold Rush’. With a climate varying between 44 and 110 degree Fahrenheit, the county receives an average rainfall of 22 inches.

This county which in the past depended on agriculture is now a residential area in the Sacramento suburb. Housing developments are seen in areas which locals call ‘Laguna West’ and ‘Laguna Creek ’. Elk Grove was finally incorporated as a part of the city in 2000.

With about 38 elementary, 8 middle schools, several colleges and public libraries that cater to the needs of about 62,000 students and aspirants, the county also has a six year university program in a religious college called Quest Seminary.

Elk Grove enjoys a steady real estate business. There has been a notable increase in the economic development of this county with a number of business, restaurants and retail outlets.

Elk Grove has around 50 recreation parks covering up to 500 acres of land. Health clubs offer many facilities like swimming, aerobics, indoor basketball, tennis etc. The natural green lawns have lead to the development of golf courses. Elk Grove County is dominated by theatre. Century 16, Laguna Village and United Artists are the popular theatre groups here.

The youth in Elk Grove are active participants in various activities. A number of youth organizations are formed to host many events to keep this peaceful county active. Some of the youth organizations are Elk Grove Youth Commission, Teen Leadership Community, The Boys and Girls Club and Elk Grove Teen Center.

The Department of Human Resources works with a mission to provide support in retention, development and selection of well motivated and qualified work force for the city. They also ensure that disciplinary actions are taken on people not abiding by rules, regulations and laws. This mainly creates a welcoming work environment and ensures a peaceful living.

Elk Grove is a very active place with a lot of activities and events lined up throughout the month. The county is currently being decorated to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ on December 25th and welcome the year 2010 with great enthusiasm.
