Nice park along Kern River. Picnic tables, shady trees, lawn, several lakes and peacocks around offices. Don't miss the feral cats near the old water wheel.

Hart Park is a very large park on the outskirts of Bakersfield. There are plenty of ball fields and picnic areas. The peacocks get all the publicity, but there's plenty of other wildlife like geese, ducks, and we even saw deer. We didn't hike, but...More
