LAS VEGAS, NV (March 25, 2019) - The Howard Hughes Corporation® (NYSE: HHC), developer of Las Vegas Ballpark® and owner of the Las Vegas Aviators®, the city's oldest professional sports team and a member of the Pacific Coast League (PCL) and affiliate of the Oakland Athletics, announces the parking plan for Las Vegas Ballpark in advance of the season and stadium opener on April 9.
According to Kevin T. Orrock, President, Summerlin, a combination of personnel from Metro and Parking and Transportation Group-Las Vegas (PATG-LV), a third-party vendor working for Las Vegas Ballpark, will oversee the ingress and egress of traffic from the Ballpark-controlled lots. "We have worked diligently with all teams to develop a comprehensive traffic plan that will include Metro monitoring traffic control points within the area to ensure traffic flow, similar to other major venues in the valley," he said.
There are three designated Las Vegas Ballpark lots immediately adjacent to the Ballpark and located to the east, southeast and south of the venue. Combined, these surface lots have an estimated capacity of more than 2,500 vehicles.
Main entrances to the Ballpark are located on the east and west sides. Access points for the Ballpark are from the east into the outfield entrance, and from the west at the main entry and suite/VIP entrance.
Downtown Summerlin valet is the official Rideshare location for Las Vegas Ballpark. Guests who use Rideshare services will be directed to the Dining Arroyo at Downtown Summerlin to be picked up after an event. Overflow surface lot parking is located on the west side of Downtown Summerlin's retail area. An enhanced walkway has been identified from that area of the parking lot through Downtown Summerlin to Las Vegas Ballpark.
Traffic control personnel will be in place to assist with crossing Pavilion Center Drive before, during and after Las Vegas Ballpark events.
An RTC Transit Center is located directly in front of the Ballpark along Pavilion Center Drive, providing mass transit opportunities. The Downtown Summerlin Transit Facility features an open plaza, shaded canopies, benches, bicycle racks and landscaping. Route 206 (Charleston) and the Sahara Express (SX) service the stop and operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For route information, visit rtcsnv.com.
