Center Park at the Mall
With the snap of the scissors and drop of balloons, Fox Valley Mall’s Center Park was opened to the public. Mall officials are hoping the $6 million project will revitalize an open space in the mall. There are even plans to host yoga, painting, and other classes in the park. And there’s more to come! Phase Two of Center Park will include the addition of a tree house that will give shoppers another fun way to enjoy the mall. That will be built over the next few years.
