"Middle-class America plainness"

Woodward Park is a model of suburban transparency. Nothing really special or exciting really happens here. There are no buzzing commercial areas or popular attractions. There’s no exciting buildings or important commerce taking place. In many ways, it offers the same Central California, strip mall monotony that is so recognizable in Fresno county. With little commercial activity and popular attractions, Woodward Park is nothing to look forward to.

Nestled along Highway 41, the district is a relatively small middle-of-the-road residential area. Main roads cut the neighborhood into small rectangular-like subsections. Side streets are typically wide and carve around the flat terrain. Among these orderly streets are modest one-story suburban homes with trees crowding each property. Houses are varied in price, jumbled between old and newer or somewhat revamped residences (but both typically have attached garages). If you stick with the nicer communities, they give you a glimpse of upper middle-class status (so stay north).

With so much wide open landscape, sometimes you feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere (which can be both a good thing and a bad thing). Woodward Park shines a light on the positive. Located on the western edge , the grassland is a popular public dog park and outdoor sanctuary for suburban families. Visitors have the option of running/biking the trails, picnicking with the family or taking in the lovely scenic escape. Other areas of interest are Fort Washington Country Club, Liberty Elementary School and KFH Fresno Medical Center. The country club is average at best. It gives golfers a hilly terrain to work with and a beautiful landscape, but lacks a driving range and a decent clubhouse. The school and hospital are both run-of-the-mill, at least nothing to impress the incoming clientele.
