Horizon to close for multi-million dollar renovation

The Horizon Casino Resort at South Lake Tahoe will shutter the hotel on April 1 to begin a multi-million dollar renovation.

Operated by Park Family owned NevaOne, the casino was recently acquired in the Parks’ split with Edgewood Co.

Horizon Casino Resort will undergo a multi-million dollar renovation under the ownership of the Park Family and the management of Warner Gaming.

Jon and David Park have engaged Warner Gaming to manage the Lake Tahoe property.

“We are very pleased that our family’s acquisition plans for the Horizon are proceeding on schedule,” Jon Park said, shortly after the Nevada Gaming Commission’s approval of an ownership restructuring that had been in the works for several months. “We are also very excited to announce our partnership with the Warner Gaming group for our planned renovation and operations going forward.”

Current employees will have the opportunity to meet with Nevada Job Connect regarding resources, training and other employment opportunities in the region.

An updated timeline regarding the renovation and opening of the Horizon will be released in the coming weeks.

“Our family has been active in the Lake Tahoe region for more than 100 years, and we care deeply about the local community,” David Park said. “We have some exciting plans for a substantial renovation of the property. Over the next few months, we will be working on the transition of the Horizon as well as formulating the final redevelopment plans and timelines.”

The appointment of Warner Gaming as the new manager will require approval by Nevada gaming officials.

Warner Gaming and its affiliated companies manage nine gaming and nongaming properties throughout the U.S., both in operation and under development. The Horizon marks the company’s entry into the Western Nevada market.
