LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – North Las Vegas is bringing a little sparkle back to its city’s parks and playgrounds.

The city held a groundbreaking ceremony Monday at Valley View Park, the first of 20 parks planned to get a makeover, focused on every city park south of Craig Road.

Officials say $11 million is being invested into “Project Sparkle,” aimed at installing new splash pads, play equipment, dog parks, and lighting.

The project will be done in phases, with eight parks chosen to get a renovation first.

FOX5 spoke with the North Las Vegas mayor who said this project is about improving community spaces for people to enjoy.

“The community has been really, really excited about it,” said Mayor Pamela Goynes-Brown. “They’re happy, we’re happy because we’re promoting healthy lifestyles and brining the community to safe spaces and in their parks and communities, there’s nothing that can touch that.”

Officials say total construction at Valley View Park will take six to nine months.

Other parks will vary in construction time because of varying designs and features. Those who want to weigh-in on improvements to parks can take a survey here.
