NEW EQUESTRIAN ARENA PLANNED FOR LONE MOUNTAIN PARK

The Lone Mountain Community meeting led by Clark County Commissioner Larry Brown on Feb. 12 discussed a recent request for proposal and developments for a new equestrian arena.

Brown, whose district includes the park, said the Request for Proposal is an attempt to create more of a demand and availability for people who would like tennis lessons and league play at tennis courts throughout Clark County. It is still in the review process.

Plans are also being developed for an estimated $5 million equestrian center at Lone Mountain Park, 9825 W. Lone Mountain Road.

A 2-mile horse trail is planned along the base of Lone Mountain. Other developments include a covered practice riding arena, a horse trailer parking area, picnic pavilion, children’s play area, and a multiuse trail to connect the original park located near Jensen Street and Alexander Road with a new 20-acre phase that opened in October 2012 along Lone Mountain Road.

The new amenities are being added west of the original park and are scheduled to be completed by fall 2015.

Funding for the project comes from the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act, residential construction tax money and from capital dollars from the old downtown courthouse and the settlement for problems with construction of the Regional Justice Center, according to Sue Baker, Brown’s community liaison.

For more information, call Baker at 702-455-1900.
