I highly recommend living in Rosedale if you are looking to relocate. It's a quiet, peaceful place to live among some of the nicest people you will find anywhere. Lately there has been a little bit of an upsurge in crime but that is being worked on and we have already seen an improvement in things. The same thing goes for our schools. Some improvement is needed to cut the dropout rate and improve the graduation statistics, but that is happening. The weather here is lovely, the people take pride in keeping their homes beautiful, and we are located close to Bakersfield, so there is always plenty to do for fun.
We like to visit the Kern County Museum, the Crystal Palace and Museum for dinner and some music, and the Buena Vista Museum of Natural History. Living in Rosedale all of my life, I can tell you firsthand that this is one of the best areas in the entire state to call home!
