Located 90 miles north of Sacramento, the City of Chico lies within the northern end of the lush Sacramento Valley, and is Butte County's largest city. Chico, and much of Butte County, has some of the richest agricultural land in the world. Chico and the surrounding area also contain an abundance of business and recreational opportunities. Bidwell Park, for example, is the third largest municipally owned park in the United States (3,670 acres). Our community is conveniently located to Sacramento, the San Francisco Bay area and the Lake Tahoe region, and retains the charm of a small town while offering excellent medical services, school systems, and multi-cultural attractions.

Community Location
Chico, California is located in Butte County, in scenic North Central California. 


Paradise - the name conjures up a vision of Heaven! This mountain ridge community is not on the way to anywhere except the small town of Magalia. It ranges in elevation from about 1700 feet to perhaps 2500 feet as it goes from south to north; rising from the valley floor to the Cascade Mountains or the Sierras (depending on which geologist you consult). There is a rich history on our Paradise Ridge; gold mining; logging; rugged mountain pioneers who came to this ridge about one hundred and fifty years ago.

The climate involves somewhat rainy winters (bountiful forests love that) and warm dry summers. All sorts of natural recreation opportunities exist on the ridge yet it are not so isolated that people can not descend to the valley cities to sample the amenities they offer. High enough above the valley floor to be relatively smog and fog free; yet not so high for the winters to be a constant battle with snow (there is some white stuff in some years, however; and snowmobiling is a popular winter pastime in the mountains above Paradise). Close enough to Lake Oroville for lots of summer boating fun; and close enough to mountain forests for nature exploration. In short; the communities have a lot to offer those who are tired of the city rat race!

Misc. Stats
Census information is not yet available from the most recent tally; however the 1990 census counted just under 27,000 people for the town of Paradise itself and just under 10,000 folks for the Magalia area. Our growth rate is somewhat modest, which is what most folks here prefer.


Housing Types
Typical housing prices in our communities range from $120,000 to $150,000 with homes of course available at prices above and below those figures. Conventional houses generally are on properties in the 1/3 to 2/3 acre size, with variety, of course. Manufactured housing is also available; perhaps more in Magalia than in Paradise proper. There are numerous Mobile Home parks; generally for Senior Citizens, and in many cases with very affordable sales prices.


Located in Butte County, the Paradise Magalia Communities are approximately 100 miles north of Sacramento; 500 miles north of Los Angeles; 180 miles north east of San Francisco. Closer to home are Chico; about 15~20 miles away, and Oroville which is perhaps 25 miles from the Paradise Ridge
