Rotary Centennial Park (Ceres Ave and Whitewood Way)

May contain: grass, plant, tree, and path

Nestled in the northeast of Chico, Rotary Centennial Park is CARD's beautiful new addition to our growing list of facilities. Rotary Centennial Park has some of the amazing features that are sure to be loved by neighbors and the community at-large. They include:

• A multi-use turf field
• Childrens play area
• Multiple areas with shaded picnic tables and structures
• Basketball court

The grand opening of the park is slated for fall 2021. However, due to certain aspects of the park's development, the fencing will have to stay up until that time. But don't worry! Once the fence comes down, you can be sure to have a wonderful time at Rotary Centennial Park!
