  • You know what sets Rancho San Rafael apart? The unexpected. It brings you to another world, offering new perspective. It's a lovely place to take a walk and breathe a little. I have so many fond memories I was lucky enough to capture; there's magic here.
  • One of Reno's little gems. I went there to check out where my son is getting married and was really surprised by the rangers, they let myself and a friend take a look at the room in the museum where the wedding is going to be held, and the museum was closed. The rangers also told me about all the buildings on the property, and the hiking trails. I am going to have to go down every weekend and discover something new.
  • One of the best parks in Reno. Lots of room to roam, nice play area for children, great dog park. Plenty to do or just enjoy a quiet picnic. Lots of special events throughout the year.
  • Great place, scenic, easy to get to, not crowded, leads right into the mountain trails. They have balloon races staging here, many other events. Notorious for the dog park.
  • Great park for exercise or playing with the kids. The dog park is amazing, huge open field perfect for dogs. The park has many hidden gems including an arburadim and a disk golf course.
