Out Of Town Park Construction

Out of Town Park - 10 Acre multi-use field - parking lot work

The work is currently scheduled to begin Monday the 24th and end by Thursday morning the 25th. During this period the entire dirt lot currently used primarily for AYSO Fernley will be closed. All parking for use of the 10 acre multi-use field must be in the 6 acre lot behind the rodeo arena. Please help us get the word out. The more parents that know the fewer complaints we’ll get (hopefully) while we try to improve the dust control issue.
