Present Land Use
Bidwell Park is designated Parks in the Land Use Element of the City's General Plan. In addition, nearly the entire Park is identified as a Resource Conservation Area (RCA) in the General Plan. The Park is zoned OS-1 (Primary Open Space), which is consistent with the Parks land use designation.

Document Description
The Bidwell Park Master Management Plan (BPMMP) update is a comprehensive update of the 1990 Master Management Plan completed for the Park. The updated BPMMP incorporates the acquisition of 1,455 acres of additional park land, updates baseline data on park resources, addresses important planning issues pertaining to management and public use of the Park, provides a venue for public input, and clarifies allowable uses in the Park. The BPMMP update also includes four site-specific Park Improvement Projects - the Trails Plan, the Horseshoe Lake Area Concept Plan, the Cedar Grove Area Concept Plan, and the Disc Golf/Trailhead Area Concept Plan. The BPMMP was developed with extensive input from a Citizen Advisory Committee formed specifically for the BPMMP update process, as well as with significant input from the Bidwell Park and Playground Commission, which is charged with oversight on issues pertaining to management of the Park.
