MAGALIA, Calif. - The Paradise Pines Golf course has been closed for 5 years, now a group of people in Magalia have an idea to create a community park.

The clubhouse for the golf course and the road behind the south park drive entranceway will soon be a community park for Magalia.

“I thought to myself, this has to be something it can be used for some purpose," Chris Rauen said. "And it would be a purpose that can attract people to come back and want to come back to rebuild in Paradise Pines again.”

Executive Director for the Magalia Community Park and Center Foundation, Chris Rauen grew up in Magalia.

Rauen told Action News Now they have a grand vision for the project, but it’s mostly community-driven.

After talking with the community, Rauen said they want to see the neighborhood park have picnic tables, a disc golf course, a par course with fitness stations, playgrounds, a multi-use sports field.. And more areas for biking and walking your dogs.

“It’s a real need here, and something that’s a little bit more structured than just going out in the woods where the trails are not developed and things of that nature," Rauen said. "We already have golf cart pass that can used for trails now paved that are two miles around the property so we are really excited to take something that’s already existing infrastructure and turning it into something positive for the neighborhood.”

Rauen said they recognize this area as a neighborhood park and it will be treated as such.

Organizers said they plan to employ a small staff to keep the maintenance of the park by mowing the meadow twice a year and comply with fire safety practices.

Organizers hope to have that open within the next couple of months.

The total estimate for the project is around 1.2 million dollars and organizers once funding is in place they hope to have the park up and running within a year.
