Watch Spring in full bloom in Cityplace!

CityPlace is in full bloom this spring with 10 wonderful and whimsical topiaries around the popular entertainment-retail center in Downtown West Palm Beach. The oversized, flowering displays are crafted in shapes that include swans, dragonflies, bunnies and more. The exhibit is open through May 21, 2016.

“It’s always our goal to surprise and delight CityPlace patrons, and topiaries will do just that,” said Edan Della Mea, CityPlace’s Director of Marketing. “They add to the already vibrant setting as our guests come here to shop, see a movie or grab a bite to eat.”

The floral designs are not only visually interesting but part of an interactive scavenger hunt that creates fun for the whole family. The hunt leads along the path of topiaries and allows participants to explore the shops and restaurants along the way. When children correctly match the 10 topiaries to the facts provided, they have a chance to win prizes. To participate, stop by Guest Services for details.
Other fun things to see and do at CityPlace this spring include:

Spring Photo Contest – Upload a photo while enjoying the topiary displays using #SpringatCityPlace for a chance to win a $500 shopping spree.
Spring Fashion at CityPlace – Spend more than $100 at CityPlace shops and receive a free $10 gift card when you present your same-day receipts at guest services. This promotion runs April 24 – May 8, 2016.
