CHICO, Calif. - Caper Acres playground in Chico's Bidwell Park will be open six days a week again, after a donation from a local company.
ServPro, a professional cleaning company, has offered to voluntarily staff the play area.
The hours at Caper Acres had been reduced to three days a week (Friday, Saturday & Sunday) due to budget cuts. The city public works department said it no longer had enough money to maintain the playground and restroom six days a week.
Now ServPro staff will volunteer 18 hours a week, allowing the city restore its original Caper Acres hours to remain open six days a week.
The new schedule will start Tuesday, July 30.
