The Nicholson Park Family Learning and Community Resource Center was the last community center built in the City of San Bernardino. In the 1980s the neighborhood associa on of the Bench Area (San Bernardino and Rialto) worked with then 3rd Ward Council Person Ralph Hernandez to develop the Nicholson Community Center. It was opened on September 27, 1986 and was named in memory of Harry C. Nicholson, a former Parks and Recrea on Department Director from the late 1960s. The Nicholson Park Family Learning and Community Resource Center has always assisted community members with oﬀering various child development, family resources and recrea onal ac vi es.
