Whether it be shopping or dining at any of our retailers and restaurants or catching some live music while playing lawn games at Lake Park, visitors will surely find their fun at Tuscan Village.” said Liz Kelley, general manager at Tuscan Village Salem.
Visitors can expect a blend of experiential shopping and outdoor dining coupled with community events at Lake Park. L.L.
