The Mountain’s Edge Master Planned Community now has a new dedicated area for dog owners and their pets to enjoy the outdoors with the addition of a dog park at its neighborhood Nathaniel Jones Park.
The community recently celebrated the dog park’s grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones, who lives in Mountain’s Edge, spoke at the event and recognized the Mountain’s Edge Master Association for its effort in adding the new amenity.
“I’m very grateful to the Mountain’s Edge Master Association team for all they do to make this a wonderful community for all of us to live in,” Commissioner Jones said, adding he and his family plan to adopt a dog and look forward to taking advantage of the dog park.
The dog park features three fenced areas: one recommended for large pets, another for small pets and an area for all pets at the discretion of owners. There also are benches, trees and personalized bricks that residents purchased to help offset costs of the new park.
“I want to thank everyone for volunteering their feedback in sharing the benefits of having our own community dog park, and thank residents for their personal contribution in buying bricks to support and show that we were serious about building this,” said Cameron Scharchburg Beyer, board member for the master association. “This opening is a testament to their efforts for so many to enjoy.”
The Mountain’s Edge Master Association hopes to add features to the dog park through continued community support. To make a donation, purchase a brick or sponsor an amenity, such as a tree, drinking fountain or dog leash holder, visit www.mountainsedgedogpark.com.
In addition to the new dog park, Nathaniel Jones Park includes a lighted basketball court, walking trail, shaded tot lot, splash pad and grass area. Mountain’s Edge also is home to Exploration Park and Paiute Park, and the Mountain’s Edge Regional Park borders the master plan.
