This well-established, roughly two-mile-long urban-style commercial strip harkens back to the days before malls, chains and outlet destinations. Its history can be traced through the many long-time, family-owned businesses that still serve the surrounding neighborhoods and draw customers from across town and across the region.
Brick-paved sidewalks, vintage street lamps, and a panoply of engaging shops, restaurants, markets and lots of hair salons populate the area. The Park Road Playhouse has found a new life as Playhouse on Park and has sustained a vigorous run since. You can find easy on- or off-street parking throughout the neighborhood.
