I have loved this park for over 30 years. It is so special to me and my husband that we got married there 28 years ago. We now take our granddaughters there. We love the park, and the picnic areas and fishing there.

Enjoyed walking along the river. Nice path with lots of places to sit. Fun to watch kayakers navigate the rapids. Playground for the kids and fairly clean restrooms too! Tables for picnicking throughout the park.

This tree-shaded park is right in Kernville, and borders the Kern River, which has water in it all the time and kyakers in it some of the time. There are numerous picnic tables, a few barbeques, a basketball court, and (especially useful) free public washrooms....More

Riverside Park is adjacent to Kernville, and is a marvelous oasis in summer, a pleasing stroll in winter. There are well-maintained restrooms and children's play equipment, tables and benches and, of course, the Kern River. Fishing is better up river, and there is only one...More

When you can find a park which has direct access to Food, Shopping, Sporting and Entertainment and River access, well, what is better in a park then that? This park is almost always a Hot Spot in Kernville.
