The park does not actually offer any parking, so if you’re driving the best bet is to head to public Llama lot a couple of blocks to the east
This edgy park was opened in 2013 and contains pop-up shops literally piled on top of each other. True to its name, this 19,000 square foot area is made from stacked shipping containers and modular cubes. Absolutely everything was made from recycled metal containers, which is about as green a thing as you will find in Las Vegas. Found near the eastern end of the Fremont East district, this park, with its unique industrial design, is a must-visit.
You certainly won’t miss it: the park entrance is marked by a huge 55 foot mantis sitting on a dumpster. As guests walk in it occasionally spurts flames from its antennae into the air. Inside the park you can find work from some of the city’s up-and-coming designers and artisans — it’s the ideal place to pick up some handmade jewellery or contemporary art. All the businesses in the park are owner operated, rather than belonging to chains or franchises.
All sorts of restaurants and bars are present too. Big Ern’s BBQ and Pinches Tacos are fairly self-explanatory and very good, and Cupkates do a great line in homemade sweets. After 9pm the park is only for the over 21 and you can head to the Bin 702 wine bar, or Oak & Ivy if whisky is your tipple.
Children at Heart
In the centre of the park there is a playground that includes a (metal) Treehouse complete with a 33-foot slide. Before 9pm the children dominate and the adults eye it jealously; afterwards, the children at heart get to run free.
