Formerly known as Sumner, Old Town Kern
comprises the heart of East Bakersfield.
Apartments and condos
for rent in this neighborhood lie conveniently just a mile or so east of downtown Bakersfield.
Once the site of the original Bakersfield train station, and a street car link between Bakersfield and Sumner, Old Town Kern retains its historic ambiance.
To relax, stroll over to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Park and have a picnic, join in on activities at the community center, or get some exercise on the basketball or tennis courts. Bakersfield residents come to Old Town Kern from all around to feast on Italian dishes at Luigi's. Equally famous, the Wool Growers Restaurant serves Basque cuisine.
