Park City Center is an upscale shopping mall located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and is the largest enclosed shopping center in South Central Pennsylvania. It is situated at the intersection of U.S. Route 30 and Harrisburg Pike. The shape of the mall resembles a snowflake, with its stores occupying 8 corridors extending from the center. The roof in the center of the mall is a large white tent, and encloses the octagonal Center Court. The mall underwent a major renovation in 2008, which took 18 months and included updates to every part of the mall. During its early years the mall went by the nickname "Mall of Four Seasons" because each major wing went by a different season. Sears wing was Spring, JC Penny was Winter, Watt & Shand (later Bon-Ton) was Autumn and Gimbel's (future Pomeroy's/Boscov's) was Summer. It was one of the first malls to feature closed-circuit television and WLYH-TV 15 was located on the lower level.

The mall is a major shopping destination for shoppers in the south-central Pennsylvania area due to its assortment of nearly 200 stores, all of which are newly renovated and most of which are not offered at the nearby Berkshire Mall and York Galleria.

The mall had only the second location of Lancaster department store Watt & Shand. An ice rink occupied the basement underneath the "Winter Mall" wing. The lifestyle center portion of the mall, Fountain Shoppes, is accessible from the lower level. Ironically, the mall has had no indoor fountains for over 25 years. The mall is located approximately halfway between Baltimore and Philadelphia.
