The new Center Court is ideally suited to host popular community events such as the Lunar New Year Celebration, Summer Camp Expo, and holiday promotions. Lakeforest Mall also launched a new kids club, Adventure Kids, and welcomed several new tenants including national retailer rue21, local chocolatier SPAGnVOLA, and J.Marie, American Cajun Creole, a new full service restaurant.

Play Area at Lakeforest Mall

In 2013, the old children’s play area, located in Center Court, was removed and a brand new play area, Adventure In The Forest, was created in the courtyard area near JCPenney. The new location allows the mall to keep the play area open during events in Center Court. The new play area has a Maryland theme featuring an Oak tree, jeep, helicopter and canoe among a Maryland woodland backdrop of Black-eyed Susan flowers, terrapin turtle and a Baltimore Checkerspot Butterfly.

Lakeforest Mall is owned by Five Mile Capital Partners LLC of Stamford, Connecticut and managed by Urban Retail Properties, LLC, headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.
