Clark County Commissioner Jim Gibson and staff from the Department of Parks and Recreation Department will host a ceremony at 11:30 a.m. June 12 to break ground on a new arena and improvements at Horseman’s Park.

The park is located on 5800 E. Flamingo Road at Stephanie Street.

Funding for the $5.9 million project was approved in 2017 as part of the county’s capital improvement budget.

The facility’s Flamingo Arena will be rebuilt as part of the project and a shade cover will be added along with bleachers for 600 spectators and lights and sprinklers. Corrals will be redesigned, a new announcer’s booth will be built, and accessible walkways will be added.

Other improvements include the replacement of the announcer’s booth in the main arena, upgrades to the PA system throughout the park, and repavement of the Flamingo Road entry drive.
