Take a ride with me!
The California Park residential neighborhood is the only one in Chico, CA that boasts lake frontage.
Truly, the view from the water is unlike anything you will see from the road!
The first time we put our canoe in the water, we were in awe of the variety of home styles: we saw everything from “southern charm” to “ultra modern.” Each back yard had something different to offer. There were private boat docks, a sand beach, hammocks, landscaped terraces, gorgeous waterfalls, weeping willows, and my all time favorite: bright red canoes!
If you have the opportunity to visit the California Park area, a tour from the lake is a fun way to explore. (Note: The lakes are private. You must actually be a resident or guest.) There are 2 lakes, and two of them connect under a bridge on Lakewest Drive. There are several idyllic coves in which you will find residents enjoying the lifestyle unique to Cal Park. You might wave hello to a grandpa teaching his grandson to fish, view one of several large, grassy park areas, or (if you are REALLY lucky) spot one of the turtles that calls the lake home.
The neighborhood also boasts a series of cascading duck ponds which delight young and old alike. It is such a treat to visit the lakes in time to watch the baby ducks! There are usually families that include lots of fluffy babies, all chasing after the mama duck. The lake is shallow enough in many places to view the fish swimming below. And, if you’re paying attention, you can hear the tell-tale “ker-plop!” of a bullfrog jumping in the blue-green water!
