REDDING, Calif. – The city of Redding announced Thursday a plan to apply for the statewide park development program, a grant that would allow for a brand new park at 950 Lake Boulevard. City leaders are also asking for input from community members on what they would like to see in the park.

In 2019, the city also applied for the statewide park development program. It ultimately awarded nearly $7 million in grant funding to help facilitate improvements at Caldwell Park.

The Panorama Park Project, in addition to addressing a service area gap in the northwest part of the city, could include a 20,000 square foot recreation facility, known as the Panorama Field House.

The city said currently, the city-based recreation programs take place in gyms owned by other local entities, but this gymnasium would be Redding’s first public gymnasium and community center. This could include two basketball courts, 5,000 square feet of classroom space, a reception area, restrooms, and storage. Park grounds would also include trails, park amenities, landscaping, a playground, parking and more.

Now, the city is asking for feedback from the community. Those who would like to share their thoughts on what amenities they would like to see in the park can attend any or all of the five in-person or Zoom meetings.

Those who can’t attend the meetings, can fill out an online survey, click here to take it. For details on the Zoom meetings and how to register for them, click here.
