Bidwell Park Review
The sprawling 3,670-acre Bidwell Park is a community green space straddling Big Chico Creek, where scenes from Gone With the Wind and the 1938 version of Robin Hood (starring Errol Flynn) were filmed. The region's recreational hub, it includes a golf course, swimming areas, and biking, hiking, horseback riding, and in-line skating trails. One of the largest city-run parks in the country, Bidwell starts as a slender strip downtown and expands eastward 11 miles toward the Sierra foothills. Chico Creek Nature Center serves as the official information site for Bidwell Park.
