Holy dog doo! Pioneer Park? Are you serious? Pioneer Park is east Bakersfield...... and east Bakersfield is... not so good. Pioneer Park is two blocks from where I lived when I was 18. It is not a good area at all now. Run down, lots of gangs, etc. With all the really nice parks in Bakersfield, even ones with stages, why the heck would they choose that park??? Odd.
