Huckleberry Park’s first phase to open in 2014

Good things come in threes, and so it is with parks at the Providence master plan, which just broke ground on its third park. Huckleberry Park will join The Promenade and Knickerbocker Park at the fast-selling community in northwest Las Vegas.

Las Vegas City Councilman Steve Ross joined Providence developer Focus Property Group, community residents and homeowners association representatives at the Huckleberry site for a groundbreaking ceremony, including shoveling dirt to secure the flagpole and raise the park’s American flag.

“It’s great to be celebrating yet another milestone in the development of this fantastic community and the benefits a park brings to its residents,” said Councilman Ross of the Providence master planned community during the event. His ward covers the 1,200-acre Providence area. “Open space and parks are important to our quality of life, and Providence residents are fortunate that Focus Property Group understands this, as it continues to add amenities to the community. Considering the economic downturn we’re beginning to emerge from, building this park takes on even more significance.”

Huckleberry Park will have large and small dog parks, multi-use events field, full court basketball, an outdoor stage area, swings, picnic areas, shade ramada and other space designated for future amenities. Located at the southwest corner of Farm Road and Egan Crest Way, it will open in phases beginning in late 2014 and is expected to cost $2 million.

“Parks like this illustrate why residents love living here and homebuyers continue to purchase homes here, placing Providence among the fastest-selling master planned communities in the country,” said John Ritter, chief executive officer of Focus Property Group. “The addition of Huckleberry Park – our third park – is a continuation of our vision for Providence and its small town America ambiance with many outdoor, lifestyle, fitness and recreational amenities for all ages. They enrich the quality of life, and the park provides another venue for both homeowners and community events.”

Huckleberry Park’s design follows Focus Property Group’s philosophy of offering residents many avenues for fitness and outdoor recreation with a commitment to protecting the natural desert environment with drought-tolerant landscaping and incorporating its beauty.

The park’s name draws inspiration from the classic Mark Twain character “Huckleberry Finn,” which captures the spirit of Providence’s small town Americana theme and is inspired by American literary and historical icons.
