SUMMERLIN OPENS NEW PARK
Summerlin has opened a new park, Community Park, at 7025 S. Fort Apache Road between the Wet ‘n’ Wild water park and Faiss Middle School. The park is open to the public and features reserved parking spaces adjacent to the water park’s lot. The park offers three picnic ramadas, a grassy area and two shaded play structures with slides and bridges. The main building was inspired by the ridgeline of the Spring Mountains and mining activities that took place there years ago.
Clark County has approved plans for a 25,000-square-foot aquatic center on the site. Once complete, it will house a Junior Olympic-size pool and aerobic pool. A construction date has not yet been set.
