Combining Sports & Shopping

"The Village at Granite Park is a commercial project unlike any Fresno has seen," the Fresno Bee reports. "Granite Park will combine about 20 acres of baseball, softball and soccer fields with dozens of shops and restaurants to create Fresno's first regional center combining two American passions -- sports and shopping. . . .

"It's a so-called 'lifestyle' center with an entertainment magnet that, for once, is not a movie theater. Instead, playing fields complement the shops."

Interesting idea worth watching. Drop the kids off at their soccer game, walk over to the mall, do some shopping, sit and have a coffee, walk over to pick them up.
