4.2/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web
Get to know the life that thrives in a desert at Springs Preserve, which extends across 73 hectares (180 acres) interlaced with walkways. Based on Las Vegas' original water source, the preserve includes botanical gardens, galleries, and event venues. Take a stroll along themed trails to learn about the various vegetation that grows in the desert, or marvel at the colorful creatures in the butterfly garden. While there, make sure you catch the super-realistic "flash flood" show. Learn local history from photographs in the museum, change up the scenery and explore the wetland habitat, and see if you can catch a show in the indoor theater (check the website for information). If you get hungry, stop by the onsite cafe. Plan your visit to Springs Preserve and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Las Vegas trip itinerary builder.

  • One of the most wonderful things about living in Las Vegas has been visiting the Springs Preserve. This is a pristine nature area, with beautiful gardens, museums, and walking trails. More than that though, this is THE place to get children interested in experiencing nature. The Preserve has a trading post where kids can bring items they have collected and take them in for other nature items at no cost. There are also programs to earn badges for learning about things like sustainable architecture, story-time activities for babies and toddlers, and some small fauna for the children to view. I cannot recommend this place enough. If you have not been here, GO!
  • Loved coming here as a kid and now as an adult I still love it! Great discounts if you're a local too, like dirt cheap! Always super well maintained cause I mean, other than the fact it is a preserve, it has an A+ on sanitation. The different attractions it has are great too, not to mention the museum a couple of feet away as well, plus a butterfly habitat in late fall! How can you not love this place?
  • Great little Eco-gem in the middle of Vegas. Building are LEED certified platinum. Beautiful gardens. Cool museum that is educational.
  • Love everything about Springs Preserve. From the gardens to the museum to the trails to the various festivals and special events them put on. Great place to take the kids and spend a few hours or all day.
  • A wonderful experience with kids. Fun and fascinating. Great events keep you coming back!
