River Park is a shopping center in Fresno, California on the east side of Blackstone Avenue featuring three distinct shopping areas: The Shops at River Park, The Marketplace at River Park, and River Park Plaza.
While plans for the shopping center date back to the 1970s, the retail project was completed only in the late 1990s. River Park is anchored by Macy's, Best Buy, Target, and the 21-screen movie and IMAX theatre run by Edwards Theatres. Other major retailers include Marshalls, Cost Plus World Market, Sports Authority, OfficeMax, Old Navy and REI, with several restaurants located throughout the sprawling 100-acre (40 ha) open-air complex. The shopping center is managed by Lance-Kashian & Company.
In 2007 River Park planned a curfew for visitors under 18 amidst claims that teens were seen as a "nuisance" by the shops and by other shoppers. Due to widespread public resistance the curfew policy was postponed indefinitely.
