Oildale Real Estate and North Bakersfield Homes
Oildale is located just a few miles north of downtown Bakersfield across the Kern River, the area is sometimes referred to as North Bakersfield or North of the River. This is a rapidly expanding area with commercial and manufacturing businesses steadily moving in. The Kern River is Oildale's southern border, and the northern border fades into the foothills. To the east, Manor Street and South Granite Rd are the boundaries, and Highway 99 defines the western border.
Although the area of North Bakersfield is not a big luxury home community, it does have many amenities and attractions of note. There are a number of parks, pools, and community facilities that include Riverview Park, Standard Park, North Beardsley Park, McCray Park, Sears Park, and North Meadows Park.
The Bakersfield Speedway is located in Oildale. It boasts being "The west's fastest 1/3 mile high banked clay oval". Oildale is also fairly convenient to the Sequoia National Forest to the north.
Meadows Field Airport is here as well. It is Bakersfield's primary airport and offers nonstop flights from Bakersfield to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Phoenix, Denver and Houston; as well as one-stop flights to hundreds of other domestic and international destinations.
It also serves as Bakersfield's commercial air terminal.
There are quite a few schools in the area, including:
- North High School
- North Beardsley Elementary School
- Standard Middle School
- Wingland Elementary School
- Highland Elementary School
