Entrance to Aera Park Closed Amid COVID-19 Concerns

Facility is one of several run by the City that remain closed

The City of Bakersfield appreciates how much our community loves our facilities and we all hope to see our fields busy again in the future. However, it is critical for the community to follow our facility closure guidelines.

Aera Park in Northwest Bakersfield, along with Kaiser Permanente Sports Village and the Mesa Marin Sports Complex, remains closed to the public due to the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) health crisis.

After receiving reports of private instructors and players continuing to meet and practice at Aera Park, the City has blocked entrance to the facility.

All major professional sports leagues as well as college and high schools have delayed, postponed or even canceled their seasons as well. Your league can wait. Your team can wait. Your players can wait.

It is for everyone's safety and health. Do your part: Save Lives. Stay Home.
