City of Bakersfield Park
Grissom Park features a fun gathering place for friends and family, and is located just West of Highway 99 on White Lane at Grissom Drive. This park features two picnic areas which can be reserved for family, friends or organizational events. There is also a covered serving shelter which can be added to your reservation so food can be served easily to a large gathering, and the food is protected from the elements.
In addition to the picnic areas, this park features a wonderful sandlot style playground area with climbing and sliding toys sure to exhaust even the most energetic child! If you have a toddler, there is a portion of the sandlot playground area built just for them. They can enjoy the “tot lot” toys while you relax under the covered picnic style seating area.
If you enjoy basketball, there is a basketball court, with lighting, within the park also.
We have tried to accomplish something for everyone, and hope you take advantage of this wonderful park!
