The Promenade History

Promenade on the River opened in 2001, turning a vacant building originally built to be luxury condominiums, into an upscale senior living community unlike any in the area.

Promenade’s neighborhood is filled with rich history. Some of the most influential people in Nevada’s history once lived in the Newlands neighborhood on Court Street.George Wingfield, a familiar name in Reno, donated the land that would later become Wingfield Park to the City of Reno. This downtown river park is one of the vistas seen from Promenade balconies and the roof top pool deck. Other notable residents included Henry Gosse, who helped make downtown Reno a tourism favorite in the early 1900s, and of course, the neighborhood’s namesake, Senator Francis G. Newlands, who represented Nevada in the Senate in the early 1900s.
