The Silverado Ranch Community Center is a 36,900 square-foot facility to be constructed on the north side of the existing Silverado Ranch Park. This new recreation center will serve the residents in this active community with indoor sports amenities as well as spaces for community meetings and various Clark County recreation programming. The project aims to promote health and wellness in the community through designing a space that brings the park inside the building.
Working with Commissioner Michael Naft’s office, LGA conducted a public outreach survey and an online public meeting to engage the residents for feedback. Through the public process, an indoor running track was added to the project and will be a unique feature among community centers in the Valley. The indoor running track is elevated at the mezzanine level inside the Community Center with a fully accessible ramp for people of all abilities to use. The two-story volume created in the main circulation area of the Center will house a newly commissioned work of public art – a collection of suspended sculptural pieces inspired by our natural environment. From the mezzanine level inside of the gymnasium, pockets of enclosed “balconies” were designed so patrons may enjoy a view to the Las Vegas Strip or look out to the baseball fields in the park.
In addition to the existing park facilities, this project will also bring to Silverado Ranch Park a new outdoor performance plaza. The plaza is equipped with infrastructure to set up for a variety of performances, and a tiered artificial turf area will be used for audience seating. While it is connected with the large drop-off area in front of the entrance, the pedestrian only space can be secured for large community events. The plaza also provides a seamless transition between the new building and the existing park trails. From inside the large multipurpose room, one can enjoy the views to this performance plaza, and the large folding doors allows the indoor-outdoor spaces to be used as one large gathering space.
