The China Creek Nature Trail can be found within Fresno County’s 120-acre China Creek Park located in Centerville. This park is undeveloped so there are no picnic tables, barbecues, shelters, water fountains or public restrooms. The natural surroundings are there for your enjoyment and personal experience of nature’s gentle beauty.


The Sequoia Chapter of the California Native Plant Society developed the China Creek Nature Trail (see link below to download). They wanted to share the experience of a walking trail where you can surround yourself in an area of vegetation, once so evident in the valley. They focused this trail experience on the beauty and importance of native plants to our lives.When planning a trip to China Creek Park take highway 180 to Smith Avenue in Centerville, turn south at Centerville School, drive to the stop sign, continue to the gate, and you are at the park’s entrance. Remember to bring water, a hat, a camera, binoculars, mosquito repellent and pack out what ever you’ve packed in with you.


We’d like to hear from you about your experiences on the China Creek Nature Trail.
