Small park with tables and bbq pits. Not much for water access but there is a area if you want to fish. Not to far out side of chico worth the drive to go and relax and enjoy the fresh air.

From the little part I have seen, this park seems to offer something for everyone. Loved the swimming in the creek, the bike paths and running trails. Looking forward to explore more!
