MAGALIA, Calif. – Saturday was a celebration day in Magalia as a grand opening and ribbon cutting was held at the Magalia Community Park at 13917 South Park Drive (Andover and Skyway).

The non-profit organization runs the Magalia Community Center and the South Pines Disc Golf Course.

Executive Director Chris Rauen said, “Teams of volunteers have been working for a year repairing, updating, cleaning, and clearing the community center and the 40-acre park/disc golf course.”

Rauen called the center and park/disc golf course places for the community to gather, enjoy the beautiful outdoors, and provide resources that help people rebuild and connect.”

In addition to the course, a 1.8-mile paved path runs along the course providing a place for walking, bike riding, jogging. A lot of dog walkers also use the path on a daily basis.

The need for a community gathering spot has been great since the Camp Fire that burned homes and parts of Magalia and most of Paradise in November 2018. The facility provides a gathering space for classes, meetings, events, and private functions.

“Our dream of a community center and park for Magalia and the Upper Ridge is finally being realized,” said Board of Directors chairperson Rich Gingery, Jr.

The treasurer of the non-profit, Janet Rose, thanked the North Valley Community Foundation/Butte Strong Fund and Tri-Counties Bank for their financial support. She also thanked the individual and business sponsors of the disc golf course.

Da Hotpots and the Ridge Strong Band played at the event, which included a ribbon-cutting by the Paradise Chamber of Commerce.
There were also disc golf demonstrations, networked video gaming opportunities, food, and crafts.
