The Berry Creek Community Association (BCCA) was recognized by the Butte County Board of Supervisors in 2007 as the official voice of Berry Creek. Prior to that time, being an unincorporated area, Butte County made decisions that affected us as a community without any input from us directly.

The BCCA deals with quality of life issues that effect the Berry Creek community which encompasses all of the 95916 zipcode.

Years of efforts to acquire a place to call home were successful in January, 2014. The BCCA partnered with FRRPD and the Pioneer Union School District to create a community park on the property next to the school at 300 Rockerfeller Rd., and the Berry Creek Community Park was born.

The park is run by community volunteers. We have rehabilitated the home on the property as our community center where we hold BCCA meetings and community classes.

We are in the process of developing the property, including an outdoor toilet facility, nature/walking trail around the perimeter of the 15 acres, installing a giant Welcome to Berry Creek sign at the entrance, and finishing the outdoor performance stage.

The Executive Council of the Berry Creek Community Association oversees the park. The BCCA meets twice monthly, on the second Saturday and the fourth Wednesday, from 9-10:30am. We also meet to work on current projects in addition to the official meetings.

Each Council member serves a 2 year term.
