Springs Preserve, Las Vegas

4.3
#8 of 36 in Parks in Las Vegas
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. Take a look at our Las Vegas trip itinerary builder to schedule your visit to Springs Preserve and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Really cool museum! We got to see the Ninja bug show which was really neat. We got to learn about the natural defenses of some animals. Then we explored the museum a d saw a few more animals like snake and porcupine. We then went over to the museum of natural history which was pretty neat. Explains all the natural things that brought people to Nevada and why Las Vegas was created
  • We went in the middle of the day & my service dog overheated very fast because most of trails are sidewalks. We had to use all or drinking water to cool him down. We didn't get very far & had to turn around since we had no water & it would have been a long walk for us to find the water tower my husband grandfather helped build. It is supposed to have his name in the concrete stands that holds the derrik for the water tank. There are only a few of the original derricks left. We were trying to get pictures to post for the rest of our family. My father in law just passed away in Utah & had just told my husband about the derricks. Said a couple of years ago, the one we were looking for was still there. When we told the information person what we were looking for, instead of telling us how to get there, she sent us the scenic way through the park. Very awesome area. Would like to go back to see all of it, but just wanted pictures of the derrick on this visit with it being so hot outside. Over 110 degrees.
  • This place is great. There is a lot to do and it's a good escape from the busy Vegas surroundings. When you get out on the trails you really forget you are in a city. Also the landscaping and design is beautiful. There are lots of great activities for little Kids as well. The memberships are also a great deal. I felt that in 3 hours we only saw about half the park, and we will frequent about half that area more than the occasional stop in. So that's a pretty good estimate of all the things to do there. We really liked it. I look forward to going lots more!
  • Great fun for the whole family. Janessa, your train operator Errolin is amazing. He has great customer service, he always has a big smile, and my son absolutely loves taking the train when he is the conductor. We’ve got some good family photos with him; best customer service this side of the Mississippi. Promote! God bless, Jake the film guy
  • Very nice and relaxing. There are shows for children and adults to enjoy at certain times. There is a train trip for a small fee. The Nevada museum is very historical and has many facts and artifacts that ate unique. This place is educational and every season thet is a different theme. Fossils are very interesting and there is a good balance of inside and outside activities and things to do. The fox is nice to see when it is awake. The animal show was very nice tomorrow is the last day. Plenty of restrooms and the gift shop was very cute.
