Where We Live

Valley Oaks Village was designed using the Cohousing model, built in 1996 with 28 homes on about 5 acres near Chico's lovely Bidwell Park. We have numerous shared amenities, such as a large community building with kitchen, eating/party room, guest room, rec room, laundry, as well as a pool, sauna, workshop, playground, pond, gardens and orchards. The neighborhood was designed to promote interactions between residents with picturesque pathways, benches and gathering areas.

"We have all known the long loneliness and we have learned that the only solution is love and that love comes with community."
