Document Description
The proposed 20.5 acre project includes the construction of a public park in Paradise, California (APNs: 050-230-060, 050-230-082 and 050-230-088) which would involve the construction of an adventure play and inclusive play area, a parking lot, a multi-purpose community center, and an obstacle course. It would also include the construction of a shade structure, an elevated wood platform near the wet meadow, a multi-purpose event plaza, a foot bridge over the creek, and an adventure play area, which would consist of a zip line, a climbing boulder and a ropes course. The proposed project also would include the construction of an overlook with a shade structure, a picnic/outdoor classroom structure, a multi-use court, a multi-use grass play area, and a picnic area. The trails that would be part of the construction of the proposed project include two trails made with crushed basalt and an accessible concrete loop trail. There would also be a concrete sidewalk constructed that would include road improvement funding. There is an existing wet meadow and creek on site, and there would be a landscape restoration area implemented as part of the project, as well as a nature corridor and buffer that would involve the construction of a small water feature.
