The expansion of Copper Sky Regional Park – with more athletic fields, retail shops, restaurants and perhaps a multi-use stadium to join a hotel set to open soon – will drive the city’s efforts to become a regional destination.
Lakeside dining, anyone?
The park was one of the focal points of a planning presentation given last week to city council by City Manager Rick Horst. With La Quinta Inn expected to open in March, Horst laid out an ambitious vision for complimentary projects. According to Horst, Copper Sky can be leveraged to attract other assets to help propel the city’s growth.
