Now that the weather has cooled off and we can get outside without losing a layer of skin to the sun, it’s time to start checking out all the great parks our area has to offer. Did you know that Clark County has over 100 public parks with everything from picnic amenities to ball fields, playgrounds and water features?
Here’s a list of our 7 favorite parks around the Las Vegas Valley (in no particular order):
With 9 softball fields, 2 Little League fields, 8 basketball courts, 5 playgrounds, and several miles of walking paths, it’s no wonder Sunset Regional Park is known as the crown jewel of Clark County’s park system. It is also home to a fitness course, splash pad, disc golf course, dog park, pond, RC boat ramp, 7 sand volleyball courts, 8 tennis courts and much more! Make sure to mark your calendars when they host one of many events every year, like the Age of Chivalry Renaissance Festival.

Do you have a budding sports star living under your roof? They’ll love Ed Fountain Park. It features baseball, football & soccer fields, plus a BMX racecourse & covered playground. Whether you’re raising the next Babe Ruth, or a future Pele, this park is sure to fit their needs.
1400 N Decatur Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89108
If skateboarding is how you roll, then have we got the spot for you! The site where Craig Ranch Regional Park sits used to be the Craig Ranch Golf Course. This means that the 170 acres in the city of North Las Vegas made the perfect place for a skate park. The facility not only features a massive 65,000 square-foot skate park, but is home to many other rec areas, four civic plazas, eight reservable ramadas, and community gardens as well. There’s something for the whole family!
628 W Craig Rd, North Las Vegas, NV 89032
If your kids are soccer players, then you’re probably very familiar with Desert Breeze Park. With over 20 soccer fields, it’s a great stop no matter where your child’s experience level is at. It’s also home to some great events, including the annual 4th of July festival ‘Red, White and Boom”. If you’re there in the evening, the view of the strip is pretty cool as well.
8275 W Spring Mountain Rd. Las Vegas, NV 89147
Summertime is hot, and there’s no better way to cool down than at a local splash pad. The splash pad at Reunion Trails Park has become one of our favorites, just because of the size. There is plenty of room for many kids, and it accommodates all ages. There is also adequate seating for parents which seems lacking in other parks.
44 Chapata Dr, Henderson, NV 89012
Where’s the best place to catch a jaw-dropping view of the strip? If given a chance, most would vote for Majestic Park. The name says it all. It has some incredible walking and jogging trails, 12 baseball fields (yep, we said 12!) and the views are…well, majestic. It’s a hike to get there, but well worth it when you check out the incredible views of the Las Vegas Valley.

Closest Park to the Vegas Action
In from out of town and want to let the kids run wild after a long flight into our fair city? The newest park, and the closest to all of the action on the Las Vegas Strip is Siegfield and Roy Park. Named after the duo whose name is synonymous with magic on the strip, this park is sure to over-deliver. It hosts a large playground area with a variety of activities that are new to the park world. You’ll also find a nice sized splash pad (open in the summer), bocce courts and horseshoe pits. Have a seat, watch the planes land, and let the little ones run off that pent up energy.
