About Resident Owned Parks - Niles East

Niles East is a 139 space mobilehome park located at 8500 Kern Canyon Road in Bakersfield. The park had been under the same ownership for 30 years, and the park owners had no interest in selling the park and had not listed the park for sale.

In July 2002, the Niles East Homeowners Association contacted ROP to learn more about how ROP, as a nonprofit housing corporation, might be able to purchase the park for the benefit of homeowners. The result of that initial communication was the nonprofit purchase of Niles East by ROP. Eleven years after acquisition, Niles East residents enjoy among the lowest space rents in the Bakersfield area, and an increase in the value of mobilehomes in the park.
