If you have yet to visit Park Place this holiday season, it’s a must to make it an unforgettable one filled with festive cheer. With a dazzling array of exciting events and delightful additions, Park Place is the ultimate holiday destination right here in the heart of Leawood.
Every Saturday leading up to Christmas, Santa Claus himself will make appearances, and he won't be alone in spreading the holiday spirit—strolling Dickens carolers will set the perfect holiday mood with festive melodies, adding to the enchantment of the season. While there, sip on hot cocoa, embrace the joy of ice skating, and relish in local culinary delights and shopping opportunities that no other retail district can match.
Park Place provides a communal experience that seamlessly blends events, music, a charming main street atmosphere, local dining and shopping. Its unique storefronts, holiday light glow, and inviting patios create the ideal backdrop where memories are made and special moments are captured.
There’s something for everyone at Park Place, which is buzzing with exciting new local businesses. Some new storefronts include Lalli’s Boutique, a brand-new women's apparel store, Owen & Graham Girl, a boutique shop for tweens, and Sandlot Goods, a locally based maker specializing in hats, apparel, and leather goods.
For those seeking a culinary adventure, Mission Taco Joint opened its doors this past summer and added a fantastic happy hour to its offerings. If you're a fan of boba tea, don't miss the new boba shop, Bruú Café, and the artisan specialty macarons at Bumblebee Macarons. Look forward to Aqua Penny’s, a coastal seafood house and oyster bar, and the arrival of Aixois, promising fine French cuisine, both set to open in early 2024.
Enjoy ice skating through March 3rd at The Ice at Park Place. Upcoming special events in the new year include the Barbie & Ken Skate, Frozen Sisters Skate, and more that will make for warm memories to keep you all smiles through the coldest winter temps.
Whether it’s a visit with Santa, a graceful glide on the ice, or a chance to explore the exciting offerings of new local businesses, Park Place is your one-stop destination for unforgettable experiences and Hallmark movie-like magic. For more information, visit parkplaceleawood.com.
