When the new T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas Strip opens in April of this year, it will be fronted by a beautiful park.

According to its developers, The Park is designed to feel like a microcosm of the surrounding desert landscape that will also serve as the pathway to the new T-Mobile Arena. It will provide a respite from the hustle and bustle of The Strip, allowing guests to relax and unwind in the beauty of modern design and enjoy food and beverages from the surrounding culinary destinations.

MGM Resorts partnered with !melk landscape architecture & urban design to create the park. Features include monumental shade structures, theatrical lighting, dynamic water features and meta-quartzite stone sourced from a local quarry.

The !melk team did extensive research, making numerous visits to Las Vegas and the Mojave Desert, studying the geographic and geologic context of area before designing the park.

The Park was designed to feature fully grown trees and plants the day that it opens. Flowering plants such as pink hesperaloes, yellow damianitas and purple salvias will create year-round visual interest and color throughout The Park.
