If you’ve ever dreamed of country living within the city – especially a world-class city like Las Vegas – Rural Estates living in South-West Las Vegas is for you! This is the lifestyle that brings you the best of both worlds, with year-round country-style outdoor enjoyment, right in the heart of one of the planet’s most famous cities.
Just west of the I-15 freeway and south of the world-class Las Vegas Strip is a quiet area filled with classic old Vegas ranch-style homes, complete with uncommonly large lots, RV parking and even horse stables. Here you’ll find the Western Trails Equestrian Park and adjacent Western Trails Neighborhood Park, playgrounds for the kids, riding and walking trails, and lots of open space.
The clean and expansive Western Trails Park sits on nine acres of manicured grass and features a round pen, dressage court and bridle paths that wind throughout the park. You’ll also find an amphitheater, picnic tables shaded by giant covered-wagon toppers, a windmill, old-fashioned Western town, shaded playground area and plenty of lush trees.
If you’d like a day at the park without the Western theme, it’s less than 15 minutes to the Southern Highlands Dog Park and several green neighborhood parks, including Inzalaco Park, Goett Family Park and the six-acre Somerset Hills Park in the Southern Highlands Master Planned community. The latter features tennis courts, gazebos with barbeques, covered play park and a water spray park, operational from May to September.
Just a few minutes further you’ll find the Jimmy Pettyjohn Jr. Park, Stonewater Park and Olympia Sports Park, boasting lighted soccer fields, basketball court, workout stations, a hilltop trail, shaded family picnic areas, playground structures and water play features open May through September.
If golf is your game, the Rural Estates area is less than 10 minutes from Bali Hai Golf Club and 12 minutes to the Southern Highlands Golf Club. Indoor sports attractions in the community include the Sky Zone Trampoline Park, Hoop City Las Vegas basketball courts and the Refuge Climbing & Fitness facility.
There are top-rated public and private schools in this Rural Estates community as well, including Tony Alamo Elementary, Louis Wiener Junior Elementary, Lawrence & Heidi Canarelli Middle School, Desert Oasis High School, Southern Highlands Preparatory School, Doral Acadamy and Legacy Traditional School.
When you want to venture out for shopping, nightlife or travel, it’s a quick 10-minute trip to the South Strip or McCarran International Airport, and a mere five minutes to the acclaimed Town Square outdoor shopping area, a favorite hangout for locals and a must-see destination for tourists.
If your family enjoys the rural lifestyle but doesn’t want to give up the amenities of city living, don’t force them to choose; instead, demand both. You can find it in your Rural Estate home, a true country-inside-the-city experience.
