Thirty miles north of Bakersfield on Highway 99, Delano, California is primarily an agricultural community in the heart of the state’s Central Valley. Literally built by the Southern Pacific Railroad, Delano began as the terminus of the railroad’s line from San Francisco. The town is named after Columbus Delano, a prominent politician and statesman who was Secretary of the Interior at the time of Delano’s founding. There is no record of him ever coming to California. Nevertheless, the railroad officially named the town after him in 1870. Fifteen-hundred miles east, Delano, Kansas also bears his name. In 1875, Delano resigned amidst corruption allegations during the troubled Ulysses S. Grant presidential administration. Overall, history has mixed reviews of Delano’s life. Some historians regard him favorably, noting that he helped establish Yellowstone as the nation’s first national park. He is also praised for his futile attempt to protect the American Bison from slaughter by American hunters. While the city of Delano may have grown up around the railroad it was agriculture which put the place on the map. Early farmers found that the Delano area was excellent for growing grapes as well fruit trees and the town’s economy still relies on these crops. In 1965, Mexican and Filipino farm laborers staged a strike in the Delano grape fields, demanding higher wages and better working conditions. By 1970, the United Farm Workers, led by César Chávez, had won a major contract from California’s grape growers ensuring better pay and tolerable conditions including the banning of the short-handled hoe. Today, Delano retains its agricultural heritage and small town atmosphere.
It’s certain that a Delano tutor will get you caught up on your most difficult academic subjects so you can take time to enjoy Delano and the surrounding areas. The city of Delano maintains several public parks with a variety of recreational opportunities. Memorial Park offers the usual amenities such as athletic fields and basketball courts. The park is next door the Delano Municipal Golf Course, a nine-hole course with gorgeous views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Nearby Jefferson Park has a covered gazebo, tennis courts and picnic areas. Cecil Park offers ample green space and a skateboard park.
455-acre Lake Woollomes Park is just a short drive east from Delano off the Garces Highway. The lake has plenty of fishing with several species including bass and catfish. It is open to shore fishing and non-motorized boats. The lake has more than four miles of shoreline and is a great place to view local wildlife. The park offers year-round picnic facilities with barbecue grills and picnic tables. If you look close you might also see the tops of old cars which were placed in the lake to enhance the fish habitat.
It’s a little longer drive to the Silver City Ghost Town at Lake Isabella. Never an actual town, Silver City is an assemblage of vintage buildings from the history of the local area. It is meant to be a representation of similar foothill towns which were deserted when the mines ran out in the second half of the 19th century. It is home to thousands of artifacts from the early days of gold and silver mining. Open year-round, Silver City is a popular tourist attraction with guided tours upon request.
