Mangrove Avenue is a main roadway that runs through Chico. It more or less parallels The Esplanade and Highway 99 through Central Chico. Mangrove Avenue is part of an interesting anomaly that can be found while driving in Chico: a series of roadway that changes names several times, seemingly without reason. At the north end of Mangrove Avenue it continues on as Cohasset Road. Upon passing Vallombrosa Avenue at the south end of Mangrove Avenue, it becomes Pine and Cypress Streets (one way in each direction). Beyond that the roadway changes names twice more, becoming Mulberry Street, then Fair Street.
