Many events occur at lower Bidwell Park the Endangered Species Faire. Many local groups also hold events to help create public awareness such as "Back to School Safety Day" and remembering the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The leisurely walk all around Lower Park is roughly 6 miles roundtrip and cars are comfortably few on pathways that allow them. Public bathrooms and water fountains are available in certain locations (by Sycamore Pool, in the Chico Creek Nature Center, and just across Manazita Avenue). Parking is available in convenient locations.
