This 20 acre park at the entrance to Chico’s legendary upper park defines an aesthetic border between the subdivision to the west and the wild expanses of Upper Park.  Another of many teamed efforts between NorthStar Engineering and Land Image, Wildwood Park features two softball fields, an AC ring path perfect for running, multiple play & shade structures for children, and public restrooms.  This park is ideal for young children due to the many differing play structures and amenities such as large sand box and giant Xylophone which add interest and spur imagination.  When the current construction on the adjacent Manzanita roundabout (NorthStar project see Municipal infrastructure) is complete park access will be increased by the 3rd drive entrance and new bike path from Hooker Oak Park.
