Lampkin Park and Fern’s Lake
Dec. 9, 2020
Playground Now Open Again
Per covid19.ca.gov website:
California reverses course, says playgrounds can stay open under COVID-19 restrictions.
California changed its rules overnight to allow outdoor playgrounds to stay open in regions under strict stay-home orders, so the PMC playground at Lampkin Park is now open again.
Lampkin Park, located between Mil Potrero Highway and Askin Drive, provides recreation opportunities for everyone from toddlers to grandparents.
A full-size baseball field accommodates T-ball and Little League baseball as well as adult softball leagues. Young children enjoy burning off energy on the playground equipment as well as in the open grass areas. A grassy knoll and covered picnic areas provide lovely spots to relax. Adjacent to the park is a nature garden maintained by volunteers.
Barbecue and picnic areas can be reserved for private parties. Call the Business Office at (661) 242-3788 for information and pricing on Lampkin Park’s facilities.
Public bathrooms are available for members and their guests.
General park use is free for members and their guests. Please have membership or guest cards with you when visiting the park, and observe that no dogs (except service dogs) are allowed.
Fern’s Lake / Fishing
Catch and Release Fishing is Open
Everyone should socially distance unless you are in the same household.
Reminder: No fishing or partying at Fern's Lake after the gate is closed at dusk.
Beautiful Fern’s Lake offers not only relaxing scenery and picnic areas, but catch-and-release fishing from its banks. The lake is home to a variety of species — such as trout, bluegill, bass and catfish to name a few. There are even a few red-eared slider aquatic turtles living in the lake. This spot is a very relaxing place to spend a summer or fall day.
