Kern park status

Kern park is just peachy for fish AND boaters, just ask em.
Humm, are the buzzards snoozing through this one or did I work for the NPS too long. Of course Mountain Buns, your research will show that whitewater parks and fish are the greatest thing since take-outs and beer.!!! Ain't no negative impact here. God forbid that land managers would decide that ww parks are BAD for fish. That is ALL we need.
Anyway, since the buzzards have all been friendly, here is the Kern park detail.
Kernville Park is an in-stream feature, plans are floating around to make it a better park 'n play feature, but it ain't happened yet. As far as I know it is still in the planning/grant writing stages.
For facts on the construction dates of the park check out KVRC.org, might be some stats there. Or PM me if you need the absolute beta.
Actually if you want some anecdotes about fishing and park usage, contact me. The Kern is a stocked-fish paradise and the community is really dependent on the income from every type of recreation....and as far as I can tell, fishing and parkin' get along just fine. (Mostly). As far as the success of native fishies.... god knows.

I have yet to see it since I don't go back to NY much anymore, but the word was out last year (summer)..
false. We did a concept plan for this project. We have not been involved since. if there is something built there someone else designed it and built it.
