“A wooded greenway system makes this an ideal place for nature lovers.”

Located on the far west side, Sauk Creek is bordered by Old Sauk Road to the north, Red Fox Trail on the south, Walnut Grove Park on the east and Wolf Street to the west. The area was developed in the late 1980s and early 1990s and reflect the houses of that time. Most of the homes in Sauk Creek are 2-story, although you’ll find a smattering of ranch style homes here as well. Colonial styles with 2-car garages are a common sight.

The neighborhood, of course, has much more to offer its residents than simply connecting with nature. Neighbors also enjoy basketball, soccer, volleyball and youthful exercise on the children’s playgrounds at Sauk Creek or Haen Family Park. In fact, youth soccer games are a regular mainstay here, with kids and their families gathering on the nearby soccer fields on a daily basis. And the parks provide numerous places to have a nice picnic with family or friends.
