Nichols Park is located along Cache Creek off of State Highway 16 on County Road 57, at the town of Guinda. This 22 acre park provides a rural parking area, picnic tables, barbeques, playground, beach area, creek swimming, fishing, portable toilets and a baseball field. Additionally, the park contains a large area of native elderberry shrubs which are habitat to the Elderberry Longhorn Beetle, a threatened species protected under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended. A park host resides on site. No potable water.
Nichols Park is also the home of the Will Baker Garden. This garden was constructed by volunteers in order to create and tend an educational and beautiful native garden as a memorial to Will Baker. To learn more about this native garden, you can link to the Will Baker Garden web site here.
