“Love the stores and layout”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

Charles David, Janie and Jack, Starbucks, and many others. The last time I was here was 15 years ago. The only thing that has not changed is the old ugly Sears building. Everything else is brand new. The ice skating rink is cool. The cabanas, chairs, and tables outside makes this mall better than many others. There is also a small stage for performers. We spent a couple hours there. The Tesla showroom was the hi-light of the visit!

“It's a mall :-)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

Standard fare of stores, consider a longer drive out to fashion valley for a better experience. Same stores there, plus a few extras.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2012

The mall is undergoing a big remodeling. Its quite messy but the mall is really doing a great job. The food court is really upgraded and if you Have kids I recomment the train ride. They have the coolest animal decoration I've ever seen. Your kids will be hooked like mine.... great experience if you Have kids

“Downhill since the Westfield takeover.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2010

This place has really dropped over the years since it was bought... used to be beautiful but now its crowded be cheap looking kids riding machines and vending machines. Other than that is your typical outdoor so-cal mall.... with an ice rink.

“It's a mall”

It's a mall. It has all the same stores as any other mall. The only thing unusual is that it's all outdoors.
