Location Description
This park is located on the north side of Main Street on the levee in downtown Colusa at River Mile 144 – R.
Site Description

Topology Hydrology
The park site is constructed on the levee, spanning from curb to river’s edge. The site’s banks have been steeply cut by the river making conditions hazardous to reach the edge of the river. Regardless, people still use this river access point.

Current Land Use
Allowable uses at the state recreation area include picnicking, fishing, and nature observation.
