NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — North Las Vegas city officials are marking completion of an $850,000 makeover of a 50-year-old park in a long-established neighborhood now home to more than 4,000 children and families.
Mayor Pro-Tem Pamela Goynes-Brown, City Councilman Isaac Barron and sponsor representatives are due to headline a rededication Thursday morning at Joe Kneip Park.
More than half the cost of renovating the 2.2-acre park came from the National Recreation and Park Association.
An association crowdfunding campaign in May helped fund the cost.
The renovation added new play and exercise equipment, surfacing, shade structures, a restroom, a splash pad, signs and lighting.
The park was built in 1965. It's on Judson Avenue and serves a neighborhood between Lake Mead Boulevard and Carey Avenue east of Civic Center Drive.
