Something old and something new. A few of our Regional Parks have gotten a face lift!

Las Vegas:  Floyd Lamb park
Come check out some of the recent changes out at Floyd Lamb Park. This used to be a state park but now owned by the City of Las Vegas it is better than ever! One of the greatest changes is the opening of some new mountain biking, walking and equestrian trails. Kudos to City of LV for creating such a fantastic outdoor experience for residents! With the spectacular views of the Sheep and Spring Mountain Ranges in the distance, users can enjoy exercise and visual amenities while exploring Floyd Lamb Park. The new and improved park entrance provides a more direct and visible entry way to the park as well as a FREE way to enjoy the park on foot, bike or horse. The new entrance can be found on Racel and Cimmaron (Northwest part of the valley).

Clark County: Sunset Park, 2601 E. Sunset Road at Eastern Avenue.
A new and improved portion of Sunset Park that has been years in the making is now open to the public, providing new features such as a new 3.5-acre dog park that is three times the size of the previous dog park, multiple-use trails with signage describing the site’s history, native and drought-tolerant landscaped areas, children’s play areas, multiple shade structures for picnics, pedestrian bridges, and new access from Sunset Road along with an interior roadway.  The County made a concerted effort to not only improve the site but to preserve and highlight its historical importance
