Bakersfield Assisted Living Info
Bakersfield is California’s third largest inland city and considered one of the fastest growing in the state.
Incorporated in 1873, the city was once known for gold and oil but now thrives on agriculture,
manufacturing, and petroleum extraction and refining.
Bakersfield is popular for being one of the sunniest cities in the U.S. Its mild autumns and brief, sometimes
rainy winters allow for the cultivation of a wide variety of crops.
The booming economy guarantees a lively and fun-filled atmosphere, and, coupled with the perfect climate,
makes Bakersfield assisted living a great place for long-term senior housing and care.
There are numerous places of interest in the City of Bakersfield, most of them both historical and functional.
The Fox Theater, built around the 1930s, hosts performances by music artists, comedians, movies and
Hart Memorial Park is a great place for a variety of outdoor pursuits or to simply appreciate the fantastic
collection of wildlife living on the premises. The city is also home to the Historic Sam Lynn Ballpark, the
oldest stadium in the California League.
Valley Plaza Mall and The Marketplace are two popular shopping centers, where Bakersfield senior living
residents can go for dining, shopping and movie watching.
Bakersfield assisted living residents will find there’s quite a lot they can do in the city. The Kern County
Museum boasts of having more than 50 historic structures and exhibits, while the Kern County Library
houses not just books and DVDs, but also a “special collection” of Kern County and Bakersfield history.
And if the number of senior centers is any indication, Bakersfield has an active senior community. The
Rasmussen Senior Center in E. Roberts Lane and Greenacres Senior Center in Calloway Drive both offer
quilting lessons, bingo games and fitness classes, while the Richard Prado East Bakersfield Senior Center
along Ridge Road is famous for its Friday dances.
