In a unique collaboration, the cities of West Sacramento and Sacramento, in partnership with the Crocker Art Museum, is currently developing a master plan for public art and cultural gathering, entitled "River Crossing," that will connect the two cities along a portion of the Sacramento River.

The Washington District's riverfront location and its role as a critical connection point between the two cities has made the district a primary focus in River Crossing. The master plan will reimagine the Washington District through public art and creative placemaking and activate the riverfront.

The Washington District is the region’s best kept secret. Through strategic planning and implementation, the District will become a culturally diverse, sustainable, and walkable urban village that embraces historic charm and encourages modern development. A series of interconnected neighborhood and urban parks will offer a wide range of recreational amenities, while continually emphasizing a connection to the Sacramento River. The integration of strategically located public art will reinforce the District’s cultural identity. A thoughtful blend of proposed residential, retail, commercial, and open space land uses will establish the foundation for long-term economic vitality and result in a vibrant riverfront district. Through these efforts, water front districts will emerge as the epicenter of art, architecture, culture, and history within the heart of West Sacramento.
