It does have dedicated restrooms. It is located between Orient and
Flume streets along Humboldt Avenue. It is 10,000-square-foot. The
park is open from 8 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. throughout the summer months;
in the fall the park closes at sunset. It is also equipped with a
round-the-clock security camera.



Its pretty hot. You can get lots of speed, it has a huge bowl, its really tall(10' maybe), but it has curved edges, so you down drop down. You can be grinding on the 1/4 pipes all around the park. It had some jumps and some gaps you can land. Its a great park. There are 1/4 pipes all the way around, some you don't have to push hardly at all. It has long rail, a few tall and a few shorts. Its fenced in, but the front gate is this cool artwork of skaters. The place is covered with skating art, not grafiti, but cool art. You can tell the locals cherish this park, because its really clean. I mean it, its cleaner than Chico itself. I recomend highly. Also if you skate for a few hours, in the summer there is this sweet public pool not too far, where you can cool down.

The reviews here are for the old skatepark, which left something to be desired. But in 2018 Grindine added on to this park. They made a [very] small out-and-back street section, but their work is really about the bowl. This thing is imposing and not for the faint of heart. You drop in the shallow end and immediate go down a steep 3 foot waterfall that rockets you into the 12 ft deep end. There's a loveseat in one of the corners of the shallow end that I'm sure is great for high-level skaters. But for an intermediate level old-man skater like myself it was just an impediment to the frontside carve I would normally do in that corner. If you're a bowl ripper, get your ass here for sure. When I visited there were locals both old and young shredding this thing. They were super cool and the vibe at the bowl was chill. Bathrooms on site.

The other reviews here are for the original park, which leaves something to be desired. But in 2018 Grindline added on a section to this park. They added a [very] small out-and-back street section but their work is really about the bowl. The thing is imposing and not for the faint of heart. You drop in the shallow section and immediately go down a steep 3 ft waterfall which rockets you toward the 12 foot deep section. There's a loveseat in one of the shallow corners - super cool for top-level skaters but it was an impediment for an intermediate level bowl skater like me and my lame frontside carves that I would have done in that corner. If you're a bowl ripper, get your ass here for sure. When I visited there were locals both old and young shredding this thing and they were really chill and helpful.

For a town with 90,000 people, this park is horrible. The bowl is not a bowl, it is a speck. 30 minutes away is a park 10 times as nice, Oroville. If you drive North of Chico for 30 minutes, there is a park 100 times as nice, Corning. Corning has only 8,000 people. Chico needs to step up their game!

Kinda funky flow around, has a great steep wall and cool quarter to triangle sloping coping. Some smaller concrete quarters that trucks can still grab.
Strange 'bowl' is really just a lumpy concrete hole.

Skate camp kids here in the summertime- be nice and they'll let you skate with them.
