Park Renamed for Chief Justice
Public Spaces


A park that has been around since the '60s will be getting a new name next week and a city councilman will be there for the official renaming.

City Councilman Bob Coffin will host the ceremony at 2 p.m. Tuesday to rename Jaycee Community Park. The park will now be named Justice Myron E. Leavitt and Jaycee Community Park.

The name was changed to honor Justice Leavitt, who besides being the chief justice of the Nevada Supreme Court, also frequented the park.

The park was originally built in 1966. The Jaycees were instrumental in making the area a park. However, the group has since disbanded and the park has gone through several renovations. As a result, the Las Vegas City Council decided to change the name.
