The city of North Las Vegas is thanking the Clark County Commission for its decision to allot money to the new Craig Ranch Regional Park.
The commission voted this week to allocate $6.5 million to build an amphitheater and a pond at the park, which is set to open Oct. 25.
The county decided to provide money to the park because it is considered significant for the whole region.
The amphitheater will be home to outdoor performances that will highlight the spectacular view.
“North Las Vegas is very grateful to Commissioner Lawrence Weekly for his leadership to secure this funding for the amphitheater,” Mayor John J. Lee said. “We are thankful for the unanimous support of our entire County Commission."
The park is on the corner of Craig Road and North Commerce Street. It will feature a five-acre dog park, community garden plots, a skate park and several playgrounds.
