City Of Las Vegas Celebrates Improvements To Baker Park
Newly Installed Natural Turf Enhances Park

 

Las Vegas Councilman Bob Coffin will officially reopen Baker Park, located at St. Louis Avenue and 10th Street, on Monday, Oct. 29, at 5 p.m.

Baker Park is one of the city’s older recreation areas in Ward 3 and recently completed improvements include replacing the grass areas with new turf, adding landscape enhancements and refreshing the picnic pavilion.

Prior to the enhancements the park had a very old and mainly dirt baseball diamond and a makeshift soccer field. The new turf area will be jointly used in the park and also by the adjacent John C. Fremont Middle School.

The project cost $140,000 and crews with the city’s Operations and Maintenance Department completed the work on the improvements.
