My wife and I walked down to the Container Park a couple of times during our five-day Vegas visit last week. It's nicer and more interesting than I thought it would be. Even during the daytime they have security at the entrance. The whole thing has a "circle the wagons" set-up whereby you can only enter and exit through the front (facing Fremont Street). Most of the containers are occupied. Boutiques and restaurants predominate. There's a large children's playground with play structures in the middle and a stage an open area at the back. I was surprised that both weekday afternoons when we went there were a fair number of people milling about; eating, shopping, as well as parents with kids taking advantage of the playground. My wife found bought a sweater and a piece of jewelry from two different stores. I'm not much into boutiques, but having been in many with her I feel qualified to say that for their size they had both interesting selections and decent prices. There's a separate section just east of the public one that is for education and certain scheduled activities. It wasn't open either time we were there. Across the street to the west there is a lot packed with new Airstream trailers. We asked a security guard in the park, who said she's heard that it's also part of the Downtown Project. The Airstreams will become an Airstream "hotel." Rent one (fixed on site) like a hotel room. Might try that - my wife's always wanted one! Looks like it's off to a decent start, and it definitely has extended the "safe zone" east. We walked the extra block past the old Western to Atomic Liquors, but it didn't open until 4:00.
