Park Development Projects
The Foundation provides ongoing support for park creation and renovation projects in conjunction with the City of Redding and other collaborators. Past and present projects include:
Parke Diem – Renovation of East Oak Park
Caldwell Park Renovation – September 2021 – Includes a new skate park, bike park, exercise equipment, courts, lighting, restrooms and more
Nur Pon Fish Channel and Trail Construction
A new fish spawning channel was created to provide essential habitat for young salmon and other fish to grow before emerging into the main river. A new walking trail and bridges allow community access to walk through this beautiful and historical site.
Vine and Dine Fundraising Beneficiaries
The Redding Parks and Trails Foundation hosts an annual fundraising event called Vine and Dine at Redding City Hall featuring local chefs who will prepare their gourmet specialties with paired wines to tempt your palate. The event also features music and a silent auction. Each year a different park project is the beneficiary of this fundraiser.
Caldwell Jr. Bike Park – 2018
Pickleball Courts in Enterprise Park – 2019
Cumberland Park Renovation – May 12, 2022
The Foundation supports ongoing trail construction projects in the growing trail system started 25 years ago. These efforts continue to augment our nationally recognized trail system which now includes 80 miles of paved and natural surface trails.
Salt Creek Heights Park Trail – 2022
The Foundation also supported and gathered volunteers for the Re-Oak Redding project, which planted over 300 new native oak trees along the Sacramento River Trail in response to the Carr Fire.
Community Clean-up Support
Redding Parks and Trails Foundation is a partner in the annual Community Clean-up efforts led by the City of Redding Community Services Department. These efforts attract between 200 and 400 community members and provide hands-on way to care for the trails and parks in the community. The Foundation also supports the graffiti removal program along the Sacramento River Trail.
