Providence Clearly a Fan of Parks as Master-Planned Community Unveils Second Public Spot
By Alex Girda, Associate Editor
The Providence master-planned community situated in the northwest part of the valley has recently inaugurated its second park. The community, located at 10695 Dorrell Lane, has now unveiled two parks that will benefit area residents, with another one in the pipeline. The Providence developer, John Ritter was quoted by The Las Vegas Sun as saying that the community is currently benefitting from a move that can’t really be tracked around the rest of Las Vegas.
The park, dubbed Knickerbocker Park, is a $2.2 million investment that includes a host of amenities such as: a splash pad, a youth baseball field, a dog park, two play areas as well as a multiuse events field. Knickerbocker Park followed the Promenade Park, and will in turn be followed by Huckleberry Park. The third, and final, park also calls for funds totaling $2.2 million.
The park was designed to be finalized in phases according to Capital Consultants Management Corp. employee Brandon Exline. Exline acts as Providence HOA community manager and has mentioned the fact that actual completion will take place in January, when the park will add a new jogging path, a 28-foot shade ramada, a flag pole and an exercise station. The 15-acre park was funded by the Providence Master Homeowners Association. The Promenade, a half-mile linear park, was built in 2008 for around $1 million, also obtained from the HOA. The Sun reports that funding for the project came from home sales in the 1,200-acre community.
