Featured Activity: Summer Sundays Summer Sundays
Join us for Summer Sundays on Park Lane starting Sunday, June 2! Opening Park Lane to people walking or biking only was inspired by residents hoping to create an atmosphere where community members could gather, shop, stroll, and dine in a casual car-free environment. During Summer Sundays, Park Lane will be closed to vehicles from 7:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. We invite you to grab your family and friends and come down and enjoy the charming ambience of a Summer Sunday.

Summer Sundays will run from June 2 to September 22.
