Summerlin is by far the largest master-planned community in the city and rated #1 for growth in the entire nation for several years, Summerlin real estate occupies 22,500 acres on the northwest side of Las Vegas and features an extensive array of parks, biking and hiking trails, shops, schools, libraries and business districts as well as community tennis courts and pools, recreational facilities and an amphitheater for performing arts.
The Summerlin community was one of the Las Vegas Valley’s earliest adopters of desert landscaping and is often credited with helping to significantly improve its public image and acceptance, and today the Summerlin community is more committed than ever to low-water-use landscapes.
More than 30 percent of the Summerlin master plan has been designated as community space including passive and active parks, trails, recreational facilities, golf courses, the Summerlin Trail System, landscaped areas and natural preserved areas. There are also eight Summerlin private schools and nine public schools for residents to choose from, with some of the finest academic programs in the Las Vegas Valley.
The Summerlin area is adjacent to the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation area and boasts Downtown Summerlin! For more information on Summerlin, here’s a link to the three Summerlin community master HOAs. Summerlin North Summerlin South Summerlin West
Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area
The great outdoors are right out your front door!
Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area presents awe-inspiring views most wouldn’t expect to see near a major metropolitan city. In contrast to the bright lights and hype of the Strip, Red Rock offers desert beauty, towering red cliffs, and abundant wildlife. This amazing conservation area is also home to about 200 different mammals which include burros, rabbits, coyotes, bighorn sheep, red-tailed hawks, golden eagles, hummingbirds and even a few wild horses, bobcats and mountain lions.
The 13-mile scenic loop drive exposes visitors to the geological history and splendor of the canyon. There are chances for photo opportunities at various locations including Calico Hills’ colorful sandstone, limestone Indian roasting pits, Indian “handprints” and pictographs at Willow Springs.
