City of Bakersfield Parks
The Department of Recreation & Parks takes great pride in the 59 parks, along with the Kern River Parkway and Centennial Plaza, located throughout the City of Bakersfield.
Parks offer opportunities to enrich the quality of life for persons of all ages and abilities. Children who participate in the many after school programs through the City of Bakersfield Recreation & Parks benefit from a safe and enriching environment. Older adults who participate in a variety of social and recreational opportunities benefit from the social connections and interactions that are fundamental to their well-being.
