SUNSET PARK – HOUSSELS HORSE RANCH
Sunset Park was originally a ranch in the Paradise area of the Vegas valley. John Kell Houssels, Sr., eventually acquired the ranch and raised Thoroughbred horses here, building a practice track for their training.
Acquired by Clark County in 1967 to be the county’s first regional park, improvements began quickly, with the pool finally being added in 1974. In 1993 Parks and Recreation Department Administration headquarters was consolidated at the park, which continues as an important regional park for the Vegas valley.
