Chapman Park

Chapman Park Groundbreaking Celebration


Coming Soon to Chapman Park!

May contain: person, human, and water

In December, 2021, The Chapman Park Renovation project was one of 62 selected projects throughout the state of California for renovation and expansion of existing park space. 

Chapman Park is located next to the Dorothy F. Johnson Center at 775 E 16th St, Chico, CA 95928.
The $2.9 Million in grant funding is a transformative investment in the Chapman neighborhood. The grant will allow for the construction of a new splash pad water recreation and play area, a walking path with lighting, fencing, and restrooms for enhanced recreational opportunities in the Chapman community. 

Awarded through State Parks’ Statewide Park Development and Community Revitalization Program, the competitive grant program creates new parks and new recreation opportunities in underserved communities across California.

About Chapman Park

May contain: tree, plant, nature, outdoors, scenery, vegetation, conifer, and landscape

Adjacent to the Dorothy F. Johnson Center in the Chapman neighborhood of Chico, this 3 acre neighborhood park features a multi use open turf play field, two basketball courts, and several picnic tables with barbecues.

This park is not reservable, but you are allowed to have a bounce house as long as these 3 requirements are met: 

  1. It is self-powered (must have own generator)
  2. It is for day use (not left overnight in order to avoid damaging the turf)
  3. It is not a for-profit event (you cannot charge admission to the bounce house)
