Great place to take a stroll in nature. Lots of shade and water. Visitors place is nice too. Parking lot is good for pokemon and pokestops. Has a gym or too as well. Didn't see anything great on trails for pokemon and luring the stops out on the trails didn't get much.
This park has really grown over the past few years. There are lots of trails - both paved and non-paved. It's fun to see so much water in the desert and water-type foliage. And you'll most likely see a lot of bunnies! The trail I've run the most starts at Wetlands and goes all the way to Lake Las Vegas. It's a nice trail. Starts out pretty mild, but there are a lot of crazy hills as you go along. It's mostly used by cyclists - at least when I've been out there. Not sure I've actually ever seen another runner while I've run this trail. There is also a really cool hidden canyon, carved out by the Las Vegas Wash. You can easily climb down into the canyon - just be sure to do it on a clear day. Wouldn't be very fun (or safe) during a flash flood. The park is well maintained and there are restrooms within the park (but not out along the trail). The restrooms were clean every time I've had to use them. Parking is plentiful, too. I doubt you'd ever had an issue finding a place to park.
Excellent park! Great for day hikes or biking around the northern second. An array of animals that most night be surprised to see in the desert ( beaver, raccoons, and migratory birds.) Nice visitor center and bird viewing area. Excellent spot for the family.
Visited the park today, I parked on the wrong side and ended up walking around for a while before finding the nature center. Once I found a map, things went must smoother. I wasn't able to see that many animals but I plan on going back another day with a better plan. Found a quiet beautiful spot and was able to get some writing done.
As close as I can get to feeling back home in Florida. Nice to get lost out here for a spell!
