Bit of HiStory: The Story Behind the Parks
On warm summer days, the many parks of Clark County are full of families enjoying playgrounds, walking trails, sports fields and courts, skate parks, dedicated green space, outdoor grills, pavilion shelters and all of the natural beauty afforded us by our cities’ and counties’ parks and recreation departments. We all have a park that’s fairly close to us, or a family favorite, but most of us haven’t paused to wonder about the origins of each park’s namesake. Each and every park in Clark County has a story, and a history.
Take, for example, General Anderson Park near Andresen Road and MacArthur Boulevard.
