"Safe, clean and crisp"

Nestled in between Highway 99 and Highway 41, Bullard is a relatively polished neighborhood, comprised of quaint streets and elegant house fronts. It is mostly a residential area stretching across 15 flat, square miles. The population has expanded to around 33,000, but the district is so new that the community continues to grow (most of them coming from a white or hispanic background).

There is little going on this secluded community. The neighborhood is far from any buzzing nightlife or immense downtown building structures. But it has many other neighborly options. For one thing, it’s safe. Crime is considerably low for the Fresno county with its quaint streets and new commerce. Elegant on- to two-story starter homes are often saturating the area with nicely groomed front lawns, trimmed bushes and leafy sidewalks. New homes are closely packed into tight rows, with many homes boasting attached two car garages. Most people are homeowners (and drive their cars to work) considering there are no apartment buildings or rental complexes. There are also a few small neighborhood parks sprinkled across the neighborhood for families to play.

Your shopping needs are met with a handful of small community shopping plazas. Of those include Northgate, Figarden and Sunset Square shopping centers which all host a myriad of small shops, department stores and chain restaurants.

For those looking to belong to a country club, San Joaquin Country Club and Fig Garden Golf Course are both marked on the north end of the neighborhood (just in front of the San Joaquin River and wetlands). And the district has only one school, Figarden Elementary School. Its online reviews (greatschools.org) give it a solid 4-out-of-5 stars.
