LAS VEGAS - OCTOBER 20: A general view of part of downtown on October 20, 2010 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Nevada once had among the lowest unemployment rates in the United States at 3.8 percent but has since fallen on difficult times. Las Vegas, the gaming capital of America, has been especially hard hit with unemployment currently at 14.7 percent and the highest foreclosure rate in the nation. Among the sparkling hotels and casinos downtown are dozens of dormant construction projects and hotels offering rock bottom rates. As the rest of the country slowly begins to see some economic progress, Las Vegas is still in the midst of the economic downturn. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

We’ve heard some amazing stories these past few days, but this one may take the cake.

The City of Las Vegas is opening a memorial park at Casino Center and Charleston in downtown Las Vegas to pay tribute to the 59 people who lost their lives in Sunday night’s shootings at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.  For those of you keeping score, that’s only 4, yes 4 days!  Talk about an engineering feat!  Watch the park come together in the video from the city below.

Thanks to countless volunteers and sponsors, a park is being built in only four days to honor the Las Vegas shooting victims at Casino Center/Charleston downtown. It will open Friday at 7:30 p.m. #VegasStrong ❤
