Located in the foothills of the Las Vegas Valley, the planned community of Providence offers a variety of upscale housing from 17 different builders. Housing styles include a wide range of options, from condominiums to estate-sized single-family homes. The development is to have some 7,000 housing units.
Since the community is positioned on a high valley shelf, the views from the Providence neighborhood showcase the surrounding desert landscape. Residents have mountain views to the west and the bright lights of the City of Las Vegas and Strip to the east.
Outstanding planned landscaping, while designed with water conservation in mind, includes a lush setting with thousands of trees and shrubs. Two community parks are included in the Providence neighborhood: Huckleberry Park, to the southeast along Egan Crest Way, and Knickerbocker Park on the corner of Dorrell Lane and Shaumber Road, currently under construction.
Once completed, Knickerbocker Park, which was named in honor of Washington Irving’s writing, will contain numerous recreational amenities, including a dog park, baseball field, splash pad, toddler area, and picnic facilities.
Multi-use trails for biking and jogging dot the community and facilitate a pedestrian-friendly environment. With such a large neighborhood, integration of trails, walkways, and pocket parks are important in creating a small-town feeling.
This area continues to grow in population. Real estate sales have made Providence the fifth-best-selling planned community in the country. Past community activities have included a spring literary celebration with musical performances and storytelling, a community-wide yard sale, and other social events.
The Providence neighborhood is a short commute to the Las Vegas Strip and city center via Interstate 215, putting shopping, dining, and entertainment within easy reach.
