New Names For Parks & Rec Facilities As Fairgrounds Undergo Transition & Upgrade

With the opening of the Rafter 3C Arena on June 1, Churchill County Parks & Recreation is updating the names of its facilities at the fairgrounds to better reflect our local heritage. 

The county recognizes that it will take time for folks to get used to the new names, so signage will be replaced or installed to help folks remember what to ask for if reserving a facility or organizing a gathering with friends.

The east side of the fairgrounds will be known as the 3C Event Complex and will be primarily used for events. The west side where the ball fields are will be called Oser Regional Park (after the Oser family who donated the land for the park) and be dedicated to playing fields for sports.

3C Event Complex

The RV park becomes Ragtown RV Park and the south end of it will be known as Sandy Run pasture and be used for additional RV parking.

The enclosed barn stalls will be known as the Rawhide Barn Stalls. Adjacent to those stalls is the Elsworth Timer’s Booth at the Lee Green Arena.

The outdoor arena’s new name is the Fairview Arena with its Overland Announcer’s Booth and the Stillwater Timer’s Booth. The main concession stand behind the bleachers of Fairview Arena will be called the Eastgate Concession Stand.

The Dry Gulch keeps its name with no changes.

There is now the Quarter Horse Cutting Arena and its Cut Hut Timer’s Booth.  

The main field where the Cantaloupe Festival is held is now the Lonetree Festival Field with its Hay Palace Stage and Greasewood Pavilion.

The multi-purpose building becomes the Barrel House while the Cottonwood Building keeps its name.

The Parks & Rec Office building is now the Pinion Office. On the east end of that along Sheckler Road is the Pioneer II Challenge Course, the Carlson Climbing Wall and the La Plata Disc Golf Course.

At the south end of the 3C Event Complex, the COVID testing and vaccine site on Miner’s Road becomes the 40 Mile Camp.

Oser Regional Park

The soccer field becomes the Wonder Field.

The Cal Ripkin Baseball Field is located next to the Pop Warner Football & Cheer building.

Lou Buckmaster lends his name to the football field while the Babe Ruth baseball field retains its name.

The concession stand at Oser Regional Park is now called Westgate Concessions while the pavilion will be known as Pioneer I Pavilion.

The Liberty Basketball Courts round out the Oser Regional Park facilities.

To reserve any of these facilities, please contact Churchill County Parks & Recreation at (775)423-7733. 

Please follow Churchill County’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts for photos of these newly-named (or renamed) facilities in the coming weeks.
