Natural Abundance and Prosperity
Stroll down the wide streets of the refurbished downtown area, with its landscaped medians and quiet charm. Take a ride on the tree-lined bike path that winds its way through local, scenic areas of interest. Have a picnic in one of the many well-maintained family-friendly parks in the city. Or shop a local farmers market for some of the freshest produce available anywhere.
Bakersfield takes great pride in being a leading energy producing area with oil, wind and natural gas resources - and the largest city in the fourth most productive agriculture county in the nation. From the creation of the baby carrots, to one of the largest bottlers of pomegranate juice, to the development of engineering technology to feed the world's need for energy, Bakersfield businesses and residents prosper from ideas with global appeal.
