Every January, people around the world make new year resolutions. In most cases, one of those resolutions is to get fit and live a healthier lifestyle. WalletHub released its list of the best cities for an active lifestyle, and Las Vegas ranks near the top of the list at No. 11.
For residents of Summerlin, located on the western edge of the Las Vegas Valley, there are more than ample recreational amenities and to stay active all year long.
- 150 miles of the award-winning Summerlin Trail System
- 250-plus parks of all sizes that are home to tennis and pickleball courts
- Basketball courts
- Baseball and softball fields, and playgrounds
- Five community swimming pools
- 10 public and private golf courses
- a world-class rock-climbing and hiking destination that has also become a popular spot for cycling.
Summerlin is home to many special events that are geared toward healthy activities, including Tour de Summerlin. It is an annual cycling event that offers 40-, 60- and 80-mile courses through the scenic community and nearby Conservation Area; and the Summerlin Half Marathon, both scheduled to start and end at Downtown Summerlin this year on April 23. We will have more information soon on how to sign up to participate in these events.
Downtown Summerlin is home to multiple fitness facilities, including Lifetime Athletic, a world-class athletic club, and Pure Barre, TruFusion, and Dance Dynamics. Fitness on the Lawn is a regular occurrence during good weather, for fitness enthusiasts of all ages.
Summerlin’s Trail System is comprised of four types of trails, and it is Summerlin’s most popular amenity. Spanning more than 150 miles, the Summerlin Trail connects neighborhoods and villages and provides children with safe passageways to school. Best of all, it provides miles of uninterrupted and varied scenery for jogging, walking, strolling, and cycling.
Four community outdoor pools close in the winter; however, the indoor aquatic center at Faiss Park is open year-round. The Arbors Tennis &Play Park offers year-round tennis lessons and leagues. And given the number of parks with ball fields in Summerlin, youth and adult baseball, softball, and T-ball leagues are abundant in the community.
Golf is another sport for which Summerlin is known. In fact, Summerlin is home to Nevada’s only two Tournament Players Club courses: TPC Summerlin and TPC Las Vegas. TPC Summerlin hosts the PGA Tour Fed Ex Cup Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, scheduled for Oct. 3-9 this year. Other popular courses include the Jack Nicklaus-designed Bear’s Best in The Ridges; and two courses at Red Rock Country Club designed by Arnold Palmer. With a variety of courses for all skill levels, there’s a golf course in Summerlin for just about everyone.
Summerlin delivers more amenities than any other community in Southern Nevada. In addition to all those already mentioned, the list includes 26 public, private and charter schools; a public library and performing arts center; Summerlin Hospital Medical Center; houses of worship representing a dozen different faiths; office parks; neighborhood shopping centers; and, of course, Downtown Summerlin, offering fashion, dining, entertainment, Red Rock Resort, and office towers. City National Arena is home to the Vegas Golden Knights National Hockey League practice facility, and Las Vegas Ballpark, a world-class Triple-A baseball stadium, is home to the Las Vegas Aviators.
