Key Features of The Promenade on Forest:

  • Operating hours from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily through January 2021;
  • Dining decks, retail display decks, and a performance art deck for virtual and live performances and temporary art installations;
  • Layout to promote safe physical distancing between parties, hand sanitizing stations and maintenance staff to regularly disinfect the furniture;
