Spring is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect time of year to spend some quality time in the great outdoors! What better place to be outside than the Mountain’s Edge parks and trails?
Nathaniel Jones Update
We’re excited Nathaniel Jones Park is now open! Phase one of Nathaniel Jones Park is complete, so stop by to play basketball, walk the trail, have a picnic in the grass or just to check it out. There will be a grand opening celebration this summer.
In keeping with the Mountain’s Edge tradition of honoring early Las Vegas Valley pioneers, the park is named for the supervisor of one of the region’s first large-scale projects. When lead and silver reserves were discovered at nearby Potosi Mountain, Nathaniel Jones was sent by Brigham Young to oversee a mining operation in conjunction with the creation of a nearby Mormon outpost and fort in 1855.
The 20-acre park is located in the northwest part of Mountain’s Edge, off of Mountain’s Edge Parkway between Durango Drive and El Capitan Way.
Regional Park Update
The Mountain’s Edge Regional Park is set to break ground in September 2012 and open in April 2013. The Mountain’s Edge Regional Park is being developed by Clark County through various funding sources. The $8 million, 15-acre first phase is being funded through the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act.
The regional park will be located at 7929 Mountain’s Edge Parkway, between Buffalo and Durango drives. For more information, visit clarkcountynv.gov.
