LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - If you like to hike, then get ready to possibly explore some new areas in Southern Nevada.

New walking trails in the southwest and east side of the valley, and improvements to Bunkerville Park are among the projects funded through the latest round of Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act (SNPLMA) awards, the U.S. Department of the Interior announced today.

The awarded projects that are within unincorporated Clark County are:

*James Regional Sports Park Multi-Use 5k Trail – $2,673,177

The County will design and construct a multi-use 5-kilometer trail at the park at 8400 W. Robindale Road. The asphalt trail will be designed to accommodate walkers, joggers, and runners, and will include wayside rest areas, shade structures, picnic tables, benches, educational/interpretive signs, trail distance markers, road crossings, pedestrian crossing lights, and security lighting. 

*Bunkerville Park Improvements – $1,890,174

The County will design and construct improvements to the Bunkerville Park including a walking trail, nature-play area, covered pavilion with picnic tables, and barbeques. The project will also connect the new trail to the existing 2.5-mile Bunkerville Trail, which was also an SNPLMA-funded project.

*Hollywood Regional Park Walking Trail – $1,248,698

The County will design and construct a walking trail at the Hollywood Regional Park at 1650 Hollywood Boulevard. The approximate 1.25-mile paved trail will include rest areas, picnic tables, benches, trail distance markers, and interpretive/educational signage.

These improvements are among 47 public lands projects in Nevada and on the California side of the Lake Tahoe Basin that was identified for funding today by the U.S. Department of the Interior.
