Join Ward 3 Councilwoman At 4480 E. Washington Ave.

       The public is invited to join Las Vegas Ward 3 Councilwoman Olivia Diaz at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5, for the grand opening of Las Vegas Wash Park. The park is located at 4480 E. Washington Ave, near the northeast corner of Washington Avenue and Lamb Boulevard. Cookies and hot cocoa will be served.

       Construction of the park began in December 2018. The $5.1 million project includes a synthetic turf soccer field, water play area, shaded playground, restrooms, basketball court and open grass area. The project plan was the result of public meetings with residents.

       “We are excited about opening this new park for residents,” said Councilwoman Diaz. “It will provide another space for children to play and enjoy the outdoors.”

       The official name of the park will be determined at a future City Council meeting. For more information about the grand opening celebration, call 702-229-4623.
