Ground Broken on Mountain’s Edge Park

Las Vegas CBS KXNT – A vast tract of dusty desert land in the city’s southwesternmost corner is about to be developed into a regional park. About 50 residents and county officials attended the groundbreaking Tuesday on the first 20 acres of the 220-acre Mountains Edge park project.

The park’s first phase will have multi-sport atheletic fields, playgrounds, a walking path, and a meditation garden. A “biketown” for the kids will feature a place for children to ride and park bicycles among painted building facades.

County Commissioner Susan Brager presided over the groundbreaking, noting that the initial phase is costing $8 million, and the remainder of the project will be funded over time as money becomes available.

The park is scheduled to open in March of 2014.
