As with many other cities, recreation and the outdoors are large parts of living in Bishop. The city has two parks that our residents actively use for sports, bird watching and other recreational activities. The recently renovated Amistad Park features an outdoor basketball court and children’s playground and is on the west side of town located on North Avenue J.

City Park

Bishop’s City Park is located just west of the U.S. Highway 77 Bypass on South Birch Avenue and features a community center, two baseball fields for little league and high school baseball, a covered basketball court and a large lot for recreational activities. In addition, the City Park also offers visitors a 0.6 mile hiking trail and a 9.1 acre lake in which waterfowl are frequent visitors. Several families of ducks and geese have also made their home under the park’s two observation decks built out over the lake.
