Did you know that Clovis is home to a great neighborhood that’s an outdoor haven? In this episode of Fresno Redefined Click Here we’re going to visit Harlan Ranch, one of Clovis most vibrant communities. We’ll explore everything from food and drink to the great outdoors so you can decide if this area is right for you.
Exploring Harlan Ranch
The community of Harlan Ranch is located in northeast Clovis near Sheppard Avenue and 168, only 15 minutes from downtown. It’s tied to award-winning Bud Rank Elementary (right here in Harlan Ranch), Alta Sierra Middle School, and Clovis North High School.
At the heart of Harlan Ranch is an amphitheater, where music and other events around the community are held. There are approximately 11 parks, multiple picnic areas with barbecue grills, a community center, and a sparkling junior Olympic-sized pool for the kids. There are a lot of parks and play structures as well as a rock-climbing wall and other outdoor attractions.
Added benefits like these are what makes Harlan ranch an absolute outdoor haven, encouraging its residents to explore the great outdoors by enjoying movies in the park. What’s better than live music and strolling down winding tree-lined paths?
Location, Location, Location
Another great thing about Harlan Ranch is its convenience and location. Harlan Ranch is located in northeast Clovis. There are multiple retail centers just a few minutes away at Temperance and 168, Fowler and 168, and Clovis Avenue/168.
When you live in Harlan Ranch, you also have direct access to great dining and shopping. Not only are you just a little over an hour away from stellar skiing, snow parks, and Shaver Lake in the Sierras, you're also just a few minutes away from grocery stores, local restaurants, fitness facilities, an award-winning hospital, and more. Anything you could want, from Starbucks and Cold Stone Creamery to Vons, SaveMart, and Sprouts, is available in Harlan Ranch.
We also have great local brewpubs like Riley's to poke restaurants like Butterfish. It’s one of my favorites, and you’ve got to check out their menu. It always has fresh ingredients and great poke combinations. One of my favorite poke bowls is their signature bowl called the My Thai. It has yummy ingredients like fresh yellowtail, rice, crispy wontons, Shishito peppers, spicy Thai sauce, Thai coconut drizzle, and crispy onions.
After lunch or dinner, you might feel like a fresh-baked cookie, so you can't forget Crumbl. Each week their menu rotates to give you four different specialty cookie flavors, like Nutella Sea Salt, Birthday Cake, Buckeye Brownie, or Chilled Sugar. You can order quickly with their mobile app and have your cookies delivered or you can pick them up. And guess what? They deliver to Harlan Ranch.
