Not being a Bakersfield native when moved here as a teenager this park was brand new. Having its visitors change over the years it always offered the same thing. A place of recreation were there is multiple venues big enough for various cultural events.

This park is a great place to hold a party, go for short walks, or hang out during the cooler season, but bicyclists go very fast on bike path, so it is not a place for toddlers. Also, while the lake is beautiful, children should...More

Been here several times and it's always been clean. Nice man-made lake. Love walking in this park. Many places to picnic. Nice during the week. Early morning walks are great here.pretty crowded on the weekends.

This park has a man made lake, with a small stream running through it! Many places near the lake to picnic and children play in the water. Large playground also. Nicer during week days. Crowded on week ends.

A fairly new park with men made lakes and nice walk ways. The shade trees need a couple more years to give you the shade you need on a nice sunny day.
