Part small town main street, part Park Avenue, Park Place offers a compelling mix of retail, restaurants and entertainment. In the middle of it all is Barkley Square, a community green space that hosts activities and performances year-round, including Johnson County’s only outdoor skating rink, open November – January.
Hand & Land cousins and co-owners Nicole Lobdell and Jessica Moler want you to live a natural, thoughtful lifestyle. And to help, they offer a carefully curated mix of items including organic baby clothes. The kiddos will love The Learning Tree, filled with games, toys and books for kids of all ages. Having a hard time making a selection? The Learning Tree staff members are toy experts, ready and willing to help you with the perfect recommendation. It’s impossible to leave Alyza Rene Boutique without a new addition to your wardrobe, thanks to an enticing collection of affordable designer labels that range from denim to high-style pieces. Make an afternoon of it and schedule a complimentary personal shopping appointment.
Eat at BurgerFi and you won’t just enjoy a delicious burger – you’ll help the environment, too. BurgerFi restaurants are built using environmentally sustainable best practices and feature Earth-friendly elements like chairs made from recycled Coke bottles and tables made out of compressed recycled wood. Vacation is a time to indulge – and there’s no better place to do that than Cupcake a la Mode, a cupcake cafe that’s become a local favorite. Gastropub Pig & Finch is part British pub and part American restaurant, creating a culinary destination that’s as memorable as it is delicious. Don’t miss the seasonal beer selection, which includes craft bottles that pair perfectly with your meal. Cheers!
