Originally settled by one of the first wagon trains to arrive in the mid 19th century, it was founded in 1860 and soon incorporated in 1872. Today, more than 92,000 people live in Chico, spread throughout some 33 square miles of land.
Chico has grown rapidly over the past several decades, now the county’s most populous city. Nature and ecology are important in Chico, earning the city the designation of Tree City USA. Bidwell Park is one of the largest parks in the nation, encompassing 17 percent of Chico’s land area. Chico State University is a big part of the community, along with such diverse neighborhoods as Downtown Chico, Barber and Chico Creek Estates.
