Thirty years ago, the master-planned community of Summerlin was in its infancy, envisioned as a place that would set a new standard for quality of life in Las Vegas. The Summerlin Parkway, then described as “the road to nowhere,” is today, the road to a thriving community with 100,000-plus residents, including many of Southern Nevada’s influencers and community leaders. Mission accomplished!
Those who call Summerlin home share an appreciation for its focus on a healthy, active lifestyle. In a league of its own when it comes to amenities, Summerlin offers an astonishing 150-plus miles of award-winning trails, 250- plus parks, ten golf courses, and best of all, adjacency to Southern Nevada’s most stunning natural landmark and outdoor playground – Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area – where spandex-clad cyclists are part of the landscape!
Scores of neighborhoods with homes boasting four-sided architecture are thoughtfully planned to seamlessly blend with the immediate environment. The community’s beautiful landscapes and overall aesthetic contributes to its enduring appeal and lasting value as a place to live and do business. In fact, six of the nation’s top ten homebuilders are currently building in Summerlin, a fact that speaks volumes about the community’s desirability.
While the past three decades have been full of milestones, including the addition of 26 schools, among them many of the valley’s top-ranked public schools and private schools, perhaps no milestone is more significant than the 2014 opening of Downtown Summerlin. Offering 125-plus retail and restaurant brands, Downtown Summerlin is also an emerging sports hub as home of City National Arena, practice facility of the Vegas Golden Knights, and Las Vegas Ballpark, home of the Las Vegas Aviators. Best of all, this vibrant destination is accessible to everyone in Southern Nevada via the 215 Beltway and still has exciting future developments to announce.
What’s next for Summerlin? With nearly 6,000 remaining acres, the best is yet to come! Stay
