Summerlin community centers hub of summer activities

With more amenities than any other masterfully planned community in southern Nevada, Summerlin offers all of its residents an active, outdoor, and healthy lifestyle, regardless of where they live in the community or the size or value of their home.

While the community’s 300+ parks and 200+ miles of hiking trails are most frequently cited by residents as their favorite community amenities, Summerlin’s four private, resident-only community centers, three of which have Olympic-size pools, also provide ample opportunities for social interaction. active play and fun.

According to Jenni Pevoto, Summerlin’s director of master-planned community marketing, community centers and pools have long played a role in maintaining Summerlin’s robust social infrastructure as host sites for classes and programs for children, youth and adults; summer camp; seasonal celebrations; and as gathering and meeting places for community members.

“Our first community center, The Trails, which opened in 1995, is still one of Summerlin’s busiest places to learn and have fun,” she said. “These community centers are also available for residents to rent for in-person celebrations, weddings and other gatherings. No wonder they have stood the test of time given their ability to host a variety of different activities, special events and events.”

In addition to The Trails Community Center and Pool, located in The Trails Village, other Summerlin residents-only community centers with pools include The Vistas and The Willows. A fourth community center at The Gardens does not have its own pool but is surrounded by basketball courts and other outdoor facilities.

The three community pools offer local children classes and opportunities to join the Summerlin Seals team. All programs are offered by Summerlin Council, the not-for-profit arm of the Summerlin Community Association dedicated to the social enrichment of community residents.

Summerlin is also home to two public community centers designed, built and funded by The Howard Hughes Corp., Summerlin’s lead developer, as part of its development agreement with the local communities. Operated by the City of Las Vegas and Clark County, respectively, these centers are open to all, regardless of Summerlin’s residency.

Within the city of Las Vegas is the Veterans Memorial Leisure Services Center and Pool, which features an Olympic-size swimming pool, fitness center, classrooms and outdoor recreation areas. Clark County is home to the Aquatic Springs Indoor Pool, which offers year-round water features and a 25-meter, 10-lane access; a deep plunge pool; and a therapy pool with barrier-free access. The complex has high sectional doors which, when open, convey the feeling of being outside.

“From cooking classes to dog obedience classes, music classes, martial arts to crafts, the range of classes and programs at Summerlin’s community centers is as diverse as the residents they are designed for,” said Pevoto. “Today they are as vibrant and busy as ever thanks to constantly evolving programming.”

Now in its 32nd year of development, Summerlin’s amenities include 10 golf courses; 26 public, private and charter schools; public library and performing arts center; Summerlin Hospital Medical Center; places of worship representing a dozen different faiths; office parks; and shopping malls in the neighborhood.
