LAS VEGAS (KTNV)  — The Downtown Container Park is among a number of open-air retail centers reopening during Phase One of Nevada's reopen plans.

The food-and-retail complex, located on Fremont Street, is expected to operate from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day starting on May 14.

However, management did say that some businesses or services may not be open during Phase One, including the praying mantis that welcomes guests out front and the courtyard playground.

Downtown Summerlin, another open-air retail destination, also said certain restaurants and businesses are reopening their doors to guests among Gov. Sisolak's guidelines.

"We are pleased to see our community expressing its enthusiasm over social media for the businesses that are beginning to resume their operations in Downtown Summerlin. The safety and well-being of our customers, tenants, and employees remain our top priority. We are ready to welcome people back to Downtown Summerlin, following the guidelines of our governor," said Andrew Ciarrocchi, vice president of management and operations, The Howard Hughes Corporation.

Wolfgang Puck Players Locker restaurant reopened over the weekend and was the first Wolfgang Puck restaurant to reopen worldwide, according to representatives.

Other restaurants include Crazy Pita, Grape Street Wine Bar, Maggiano's Little Italy, with the Farmers Market continuing walk-up sales, among others.

Retail options include curbside pick up with in-store offerings available at about 30 locations within the complex, with more openings expected in the coming week.
