Redding, officially the City of Redding, is the county seat of Shasta County, California in the northern part of the state. It is located on the Sacramento River, which provided transportation and power in its early years. Interstate 5 passes close to the city, which has a population of 89,861. Redding is the largest city in the Shasta Cascade region, and it is the fourth-largest city in the Sacramento Valley, behind Sacramento, Elk Grove, and Roseville.
Redding is located at the very northwestern end of the Central Valley, which transitions into the Cascade foothills. The city is surrounded by mountains to the north, east, and west; and fertile farm land to the south. Outermost parts of the city are part of the Cascade foothills, whereas southern and central areas are in the Sacramento Valley. The city has a hot-summer Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. Winter provides the most precipitation of any season in Redding—the weather tends to be either rainy or foggy and at times, snow occurs. Summers are hot and dry, but rain is possible, usually with a thunderstorm.
Redding has a long history of outdoor active living, and the extensive Redding trail system makes the city an attractive destination. In addition, the city boasts a number of interesting attractions. The Sundial Bridge at Turtle Bay, a dramatic pedestrian span designed by the noted Spanish architect-engineer-artist Santiago Calatrava, was completed in 2004. Turtle Bay Exploration Park, located along the banks of the Sacramento River, contains a museum a 20-acre gardens. The historic Cascade Theatre, which opened in 1935, has been restored and now operates as a multi-use performance venue. The theater is an example of Art Deco architecture of the period.
