October 2016 Update: The City received final clearance from Nevada State Parks to proceed with the Recreation Trails Grant.  Using this grant in the amount of $134,500, the City will remove the deteriorated cart paths and construct the first phase of the perimeter trail system.  The project to demolish the old cart paths will commence late fall 2016.  The construction of the new perimeter trail will then commence early in 2017 with completion anticipated by June 2017, after which the park will open to the general public.

Full implementation of the concept plan will likely take 10 or more years, depending on private and community funding for construction and operating costs.  Staff is working with mountain biking enthusiasts for construction and ongoing maintenance of the single track trails.
