MGM Resorts to bring The Park to Las Vegas in April

MGM Resorts International will debut its dynamic park, dining and entertainment district on the Las Vegas Strip April 4th, 2016.

An eclectic blend of restaurants, bars and entertainment tucked into rich desert landscaping, The Park will become a central gathering place on The Strip’s west side connecting New York-New York and Monte Carlo resorts as well as the new 20,000-seat world-class T-Mobile Arena.

An interactive and social environment, The Park aims to build a sense of community just steps from one the largest boulevards in the world. 

Jim Murren, chairman, MGM Resorts International, said; “Today’s consumer wants to sample, to experience, to discover – it’s no longer about visiting one resort and staying there.

“With this in mind, we’ve created a neighbourhood environment that invites our guests to explore many of our resorts on the Strip’s west side, collecting experiences along the way, with The Park serving as a central gathering space for people to relax, dine and be entertained.” 

The Park re-envisions the traditional pedestrian experience by adding a new layer of diverse social spaces in Las Vegas.

It will draw passers-by from the hustle and bustle of The Strip into an oasis offering opportunities to experience Las Vegas outdoors and at one’s leisure, only steps from one of the largest boulevards in the world.

Inspired by the iconic plazas, promenades and squares that have served as important public gathering destinations within the world’s great cities throughout history, The Park will offer an array of common spaces for socialising, relaxing, exploring and sampling the surrounding tastes, sights and sounds.

By day, visitors will be able to bask in the sun or enjoy shade beneath mature trees or one of the trumpet-like shade structures towering more than 50 feet above.

Patio-style seating will encourage a social environment, while seating alcoves tucked into large planters will provide areas for rest.

When exploring The Park, guests will discover spontaneous live entertainers, such as acoustic guitarists and street performers.

As the sun sets, illuminated elements of The Park’s landscaping will create a dramatic setting with the shade structures, emitting spectacular LED sequences from above.

Not unlike the small cafes and bistros that spill onto European promenades, clusters of casual restaurants and bars with outdoor seating will open each resort to The Park creating a colourful patio ambiance.

Ranging from fast-casual to mid-level, each offering will be a unique-to-market, up-and-coming brand.
