Oroville is on a good roll. Posted On: 2/21/2008 12:33:45 PM
Oroville is on an incredible roll in the midst of the national housing crisis. Here is just a short list of what is going on. The free brand new Riverbend Park with boat ramp to the world famous Feather River (goes to the ocean!) lots of fun stuff for the kids including swimming, frisbee, soccer field (plan) rock climbing, sprinklers, picnic areas, pavillions, on and on. The historic downtown is being revitalized (State Theatre is being remodeled, new walking trails along the river, historic homes being remodeled, new hip looking shops are opening. There is now a newly widen and straightened road to world famous Bucks Lake. World famous Lake Oroville is getting new campgrounds and boat docs. A white water park is being planned and they already do white water on the occassional weekends on the Feather River. New 4 land hiway to the wonderful University town of Chico (20 miles away). New road work to make the commute to Sacramento easier. Bay area is only 3 hours away. We have 2 large modeern casinos (I don't gamble) that brings world known musical talent in weekly. Fun to take your guests there. Each casino is expanding having purchased lots of land around their casino (koa, swimming, hotels, etc). Walking trails (near water) are everywhere in the greater Oroville area. New Home Depot, new Applebees (this week!). Weather is overall excellent (occassional hot days then cools off again) and you can grow anything here. To summarize, affordable land/homes, growing culturally and close to culture (Chico, Sacramento, Bay Area). Negative: education could be improved but my daughter seems to be enjoying herself in high school and I feel like she will be fine in the "real world".
