The Robert E. "Bob" Price Park center will celebrate its second anniversary on Thursday with the opening of a new walking path and a second anniversary basketball game.
Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins will host the festivities, set to start at 3:33 p.m. at the center, 2050 Bonnie Lane, near the corner of Lake Mead and Nellis boulevards.
The half-mile walking trail is located on 10 acres next to the Bob Price center and the Cora Coleman Senior Center. It features quarter-mile, third-mile and half-mile loops, and a rubberized surface for those with joint concerns.
There will also be shaded fitness stations with exercise equipment and benches along the trail.
Funding for the project was provided by Clark County Community Development Block Grant funds through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Collins will square off against the "Bob" Price Teens on the center's basketball court at 5:30 p.m. Admission to all events is free.
The Bob Price center, which takes its name from a Nevada assemblyman of more than 28 years, opened in March 2009.
