Park City Center is a shopping mall located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and is the largest enclosed shopping center in Lancaster County. It is situated at the intersection of U.S. Route 30 and Harrisburg Pike. The mall has over 170 stores and is anchored by Boscov's, JCPenney, Kohl's, and Sears. 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 Park City was also called "Mall of Four Seasons" because of the seasonal names given to the 4 corridors leading to each anchor. Going clockwise from west to east was JC Penney in the two-story Winter quadrant, Sears in Spring, Gimbel's (future Pomeroy's/Boscov's) in Summer and Watt & Shand (later Bon-Ton) in Autumn. The high tech mall located in the heart of Amish country was one of the first to have its own closed-circuit television.[3] Studios for Park City Communications and Lancaster/York/Harrisburg CBS affiliate WLYH-TV 15 were located on the first floor in the Winter wing alongside an ice skating rink.

The mall is a major shopping destination for shoppers in the south-central Pennsylvania area due to its assortment of over 170 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. The lifestyle center portion of the mall, Fountain Shoppes, is accessible from the main level. The mall's only fountain can be found here. The mall has had no indoor fountains for over 25 years. The mall is located approximately halfway between Harrisburg and Philadelphia.
