Took a trip to downtown Fresno earlier with some friends, decided to pull the camera out to get a few shots…
I saw a man standing on the corner of Hwy 180 and Fulton/Van Ness. He was leaning on a cane, wearing clothes that were faded from the sun, and he had weathered skin. He didn’t have a sign asking for money. Instead, he waved and smiled at everyone who drove by.
I went to Woodward Park, yesterday. I ran into a lot of people I frequently see in downtown Fresno. I even ran into my tax accountant!
The point of this boring story: Size-wise, Fresno is a very large city but you will always run into people. And it feels like everyone is connected somehow. So, uh, please try to be nice to each other; you can’t avoid people here.
Fresno needs to get it together. When I go to big cities like SF or LA the first thing I see are those beautiful skyscraper buildings with charm and character. We are lucky enough to be a city that once was smart enough to build up instead of out eating up top dollar farm land like they do now, with that being said- people in Fresno need to wake up and do something about revitalizing downtown. Those buildings have so much potential. Top dollar potential.
I agree our downtown isn’t vibrant like the ones in other big cities even though we are the 5th biggest city in California. Those historic buildings you see along the Fulton Mall have changed ownership in the past few years. Most, if not all, of these new investors are waiting for the City to open the Fulton Mall to vehicular traffic.
I encourage anyone to attend more downtown events. You’ll meet a wonderful community of people who are working so hard to revitalize downtown Fresno now. For starters, follow the Downtown Fresno Partnership. They post Downtown news and events the most.

Sunday Adventure: Concluding the day watching the #sunset at #WoodwardPark. It’s easy to miss the hidden gems in your hometown. All it takes is a little exploring and you’ll be surprised by all of the lovely places and communities in #Fresno.
Sunday Adventure: that one bridge where “everyone” takes their engagement/wedding photos, the tea house, a bonsai training demonstration, and the bonsai show at the Shinzen Japanese Garden. #woodwardpark #fresno
