Icy Parking Lot at The Growing Tree-Park on the Street

Good Morning!

Those of you who are familiar with our sloped parking lot will not be surprised to hear that it is currently treacherous resulting from melting snow and ice. Please park on the street and use our main entrance for the next few weeks and any time we experience winter weather over the next few months. Sidewalks in front of the downtown shops are all clear. If you wish to use the parking lot please call ahead 610-444-8484 and speak with us to check on the condition of the lot and walkway. Thank you for your understanding.

Happy Holidays!
