The Parks of Summerlin

May 19, 2016 07:56 AM

If there is one thing Summerlin Las Vegas Homes for Sale should be famous for, it should be its abundance of high-quality parks and its extensive 150-mile Summerlin Trail System that spans throughout Summerlin and connects communities like The Ridges and Tournament Hills, all in just one trail. Maintained by the Summerlin Council, everyone can be sure that the parks are always radiant and immaculate.

There are currently 22 major community parks in Summerlin, each designed for relaxation or recreation. Eighty small “pocket” parks are scattered throughout Summerlin as well so there is always a park that’s perfect for someone. Here, we list some of the most popular.

The Arbors Paseo Park

Not the biggest park of the bunch but this 7.6 acre linear park is the central hub when travelling through the Arbors. The park is lined with trails for easy travel between parks and to the Trail System.

The Arbors Tennis and Play Park

This 7-acre park features five outdoor lighted tennis courts and a pro shop for tennis enthusiasts. Tennis programs are available for people of all ages. Not only that, it features a lighted basketball court, a glamorous picnic pavilion, and a unique custom-built tricycle track for toddlers that resembles a miniaturized Summerlin Village dubbed “Arborville”.

Cottonwood Canyon Park

One of the largest and most popular park in Summerlin, this 69.4-acre park features play areas for children and wide-open areas perfect for picnics or playing sports. Runners, skaters and parents taking their children out for a stroll(er) love getting their exercise here!

The Crossing Park

The Crossing Park is the home of the Summerlin Youth Soccer League,  which comes equipped with two full-sized lighted soccer fields used for little league games. It also features a junior soccer field, a play area for the tykes as well as ramadas to provide shade for visitors when they’re out enjoying a picnic.

The Gardens Park

It’s hard to ignore this park whenever you are around The Gardens village. It is split up into three different areas, each serving a different purpose. The west side is dedicated to sports, basketball and tennis in particular, while the east side features facilities for gentler sports like bocce, horseshoes and shuffleboard. Meanwhile, the Gardens Community Center connects these two sides for easy access to these areas and facilities housed within the community center.

The Hills Park

The Hills Park earns the distinction as the first major park to open in Summerlin. Its large and open amphitheater is a popular venue whenever there’s a huge event in Las Vegas. The park area itself is nothing to scoff at either; it comes complete with tennis courts, sand volleyball and picnic ramadas.

Mesa Park Drive

Going to Mesa Park Drive’s a treat as you’ll see crowds of parents and children cheer and hoot for their team whenever there’s a Little League Baseball game going on. If you’re not into baseball though, there are always the wide-open grassy areas and tennis courts.

Folks will have plenty of fun here in Summerlin even if their sole reason to be here are the parks. With all these wonderful parks available in Summerlin, who can resist?  Not only that, the scenery of the Red Rock Canyons and close distance to the Las Vegas Strip is always a huge plus for anyone looking for high end homes, so don’t miss the opportunity to purchase in this beautiful community.
