West Park construction begins
Great news! Construction of West Park is scheduled to break ground on Monday, July 29. There will be no need for phasing any of the park’s features – everything will be included in the initial round of construction.
We know you are excited to watch this long-anticipated project take form, but we ask that you please stay away from the site while construction is ongoing, due to safety concerns.
Park wins $200,000 grant
Earlier this month, Nevada Senator Catherine Cortez Masto announced that West Park was awarded a $200,000 grant through the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) State & Local Assistance Program, which focuses on providing matching grants for local and state park projects outside federal boundaries.
About the park
West Park will be conveniently located off Hawk Meadow Trail, near Fire Station #19 and across Somersett Parkway from The Vue. See this map.
The park is sure to be popular with dog owners, as it will have two dog parks – one for large and another for small dogs. The Dog Park area is quite large because it takes advantage of uneven topography that would not be suitable for any other use.
Gardeners in the community will enjoy the irrigated raised beds in the Community Garden. The Parks committee is currently working on an administration plan for the garden beds.
There will also be a Family Play Area and a pavilion with picnic tables, an exercise trail, a large grassy area and access to a trailhead.
