South Slope – Greenwood Park
Deck the halls! Greg’s Trees is back at Greenwood Park. In mid-November, right outside South Slope’s favorite neighborhood watering hole, Greg and his crew cover the imposing wall of wood palettes with colorful Christmas lights and a vast, charming mural of the North Pole. Just on the other side of the wall, Greg’s trees and Greenwood Park team up to transform the beer garden into a sparkly Santa Land. The holiday season officially kicks off with Greenwood Park’s tree lighting ceremony, featuring Greg’s very largest tree; check back here for info. You and your family or friends can climb aboard the iconic towering Santa sleigh with its giant reindeer, Santa loves to visit; you can check his schedule here.

What neighbors are saying:
“Greenwood Park is the most chill place. My husband and I love the Greg’s Trees holiday takeover. We look forward to the annual lighting of the tree ceremony; we never miss it! And then we go back another day to buy our tree, usually a Fraser Fir. I like to put it up early, which is fine because the trees at Greg’s are top quality; they always last until after New Year’s.” -Melissa, Greenwood Heights.
