Commissioner Jim Gibson and Clark County staff today opened a newly renovated and covered arena at the Clark County Horseman’s Park, 5800 E. Flamingo Road. The arena now has a new announcer’s booth, show office, sound system, steel cover, bleachers, lighting, fence panels and chutes, as well as a newly paved entrance roadway. Additionally, Clark County upgraded cordial panels and perimeter fencing.
“Horseman’s Park provides local and regional equestrian users with a facility to host rodeos, horse shows and various events," said Commissioner Jim Gibson whose commission district includes the park. “As these events gained in popularity, the park was unable to provide adequate facilities. These upgrades will help accommodate these needs and improve the overall experience.”
Clark County’s Horseman’s Park opened in 1971 and is a 23-acre facility that includes eight barns with a horse -washing area, two arenas, two training arenas, RV and trailer parking, two restroom buildings, and picnic areas. Those wanting more information about this facility, may visit the Equine Event Management website at www.equineeventlv.gov. Clark County Parks and Recreation also can be found on social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook.
