Park Stockdale is a neighborhood of 578 homes located in beautiful southwest Bakersfield With entrances at Rio Bravo DrIVE and Lennox AveNUE. Park Stockdale is a quiet, mature community with a distinctive character not seen IN the newer housing tracts where it is difficult to tell one house from the next.
Residents enjoy community amenities including four full-size tennis courts, a five-lane, 75-foot-long swimming pool with diving board, Harrington Park – a private community park/playground, and Frank Weldon Community Hall – the neighborhood community center. Regular neighborhood activities include T-Ball, bi-annual neighborhood-wide yard sales, and seasonal neighborhood events.
Many thanks to Alondra Mora who, with PSCA president Jim Carnal, volunteered to paint the two playground benches on Feb. 28. She earned community service hours for the National Honor Society. Her teacher, Eli Hamm, is also a Park Stockdale resident and former PSCA president. Students interested in earning community service hours by doing volunteer work at the nonprofit may call the office, 323-4302.
The Park Stockdale Book Club is now forming. Do you prefer nonfiction? Or fiction?
We are hoping to form two different clubs that fit your preference.
Due to the coronavirus, we will use Zoom to meet safely. As the weather warms, we will bring chairs and meet at the park.
Meetings will be at 7 p.m. on the first Mondays (fiction) and third Mondays (nonfiction) of the month.
