Springs Preserve, Las Vegas

(4.2/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • Such a wonder space in the middle of our city! Regardless of age or interest, you will find plenty to experience at the Spring Preserve ranging from the History Museum to their seasonal exhibit or butterfly gardens or or or their hikes! So much to see. I would advise to become a member and have multiple visits. Just pick an exhibit and explore each visit.
  • So much to do. Two museums. Botanical gardens. Train rides and more. Don't attempt this late in the day. Many things close at three and we missed out. But the museums and botanical gardens are great. Also make sure that you have lunch at the cafĂ©. The views of the strip are gorgeous and the food is amazing. The prices are very comparable to many nice restaurants around.
  • Springs Preserve is a beautiful oasis in the middle of the Las Vegas desert. Our family are members so we try to go as often as we can. We usually attend all of their ticketed events. (Members get discounts) Family night at the Museum, Ice Cream Festival, Ohana Festival, and the Haunted Harvest to name a few. You can go on a train rides in the back and see the cottages that they have been building as well as the desert scenery. You can walk around in their butterfly exhibition or gardens. Visit the state Museum. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND visiting the Cafe!!! Love the options there!!! There is so much to do here. They have an app on Google Play that you can download for free. It is very useful. The employees here are the nicest people I have ever met. They are incredibly helpful. This place keeps getting better and better. Please do yourself a favor and visit this place!
  • 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!
  • The Springs Preserve is great for pretty much all ages. I really enjoy the gardens, where I like to take photographs of the plants and insects. The exhibits in the Origen Museum are interesting as well, though often geared toward children. Season passes are a great way to save money if you visit SP more than a couple times a year.
