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 .
