ROSEMONT, IL â€“ This spring, The Park at Rosemont, a new dining and entertainment district will open in Rosemont featuring 200,000 square feet of international cuisine, bars, live music and comedy, state-of-the-art film and bowling venues, and more. The beautifully designed complex will encircle a graceful lawn that will play host to farmersâ€™ markets, festivals and a winter ice skating rink. The Park at Rosemont is located at 5501 Park Place.
â€œThe Park at Rosemont will have something for everyone,â€ said Rosemont Mayor Brad Stephens. â€œThere will be casual dining with great food from around the globe; uproarious jokes from todayâ€™s best comedians; great music from established and rising country music stars; the areaâ€™s best bowling; and Hollywoodâ€™s top films shown in a state-of-the-art theater with superior customer amenities. In addition, we will offer a wide array of events, festivals and family entertainment on the public lawn. We are confident that The Park at Rosemont will become a popular place for people from the greater Chicago area and out-of-town visitors to relax, congregate and enjoy a great meal, drinks with friends or one of the many entertainment options. It also is a great complement to Rosemontâ€™s many other attractions, including the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, the Akoo Theatre at Rosemont, the Allstate Arena and the Ballpark at Rosemont.â€

Designed by Baltimore-based Design Collective, the welcoming tree-lined environment will feature charming brick buildings and generous spaces for outdoor patios. The Park at Rosemont was designed to provide a place that would offer something to please everyone â€“ office workers seeking a casual business lunch, young professionals planning a fun evening out, convention attendees looking for some post-conference relaxation, theatergoers in need of pre- or post-show dining, or families in need ofÂ kid-friendly weekend entertainment options.
