Carson City and Lennar Homes are pleased to announce the grand opening of Schulz Ranch Park on October 16 at 5:30 p.m. Schulz Ranch Park will be the first new park in Carson City in 12 years. The park was built by Lennar Homes, but is owned by Carson City, with maintenance funded through the City’s first Landscape Maintenance District.  This 3.5-acre park is home to the second universally accessible playground in Carson City. Other amenities include a basketball court, restroom, multi-use path, picnic pavilion, landscaping, and a large multipurpose turf area that also serves as a water quality basin. The park represents a $1.4 million investment in outdoor recreation for the benefit of the public.

 Schulz Ranch Park is in the Schulz Ranch subdivision, a Lennar community, located on the corner of Race Track Rd. and Wheeler Peak Dr., in south Carson City. The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will begin at 5:30 p.m., followed by a movie in the park, Hotel Transylvania, at 6 p.m. All are invited to celebrate the opening of the City’s newest park. Please dress for the weather, bring blankets and low-back chairs for the movie, have your dogs leashed and no glass containers.
