The City of Citrus Heights has unveiled its latest “Top 20” list for the month of June, featuring a community-generated compilation of the top natural scenic spots to enjoy in the city.

Various parks in the city make up roughly half the list, with other popular picks including Calvary Cemetery Vineyard on Verner Avenue and the historic Rusch Home garden on Antelope Road.

The list was presented during the city council’s June 8 meeting and was also published on the city’s website. City staff said the list was compiled using community submissions via social media and was published in alphabetical order.

The list is part of a “Top 20” series of lists compiled by the city and released each month during 2017 in celebration of the 20th anniversary since Citrus Heights became a city in 1997. Past lists have included top 20 leaders and top 20 oldest local businesses.
