Exploring Las Vegas Parks

Since moving to Las Vegas my daughters and I have visited few different parks just minutes away from our home.  The parks here where we live have Security patrol.  The aesthetic landscaping takes you away. The park has big trees and keeps you cool during the Summer season as you are mostly under shaded areas.

The Willows Park is where we spent our afternoon Summers it is where the community swimming pool is located.  For a community pool their was not a whole lot of people,  that was one reason I enjoyed going there.  The kids spent hours and hours in the pool.  The place has two slides. One of which was for the little kids and the other was a great big slide for your older ones. You are allowed to bring in coolers with refreshments and beverages (non alcoholic), no glass bottles and that is a plus for us.

The walking trail is short.  It starts at the Willows Park and ends at Town Center Drive.  The tunnel takes you to and from the park area or to your home.  The theme of the park is of a fable, walking on trail you will notice a Turtle, Rabbit, Lion and a Mouse.  There is two play grounds again one for the younger toddler age kids to school age children.  The park has a Basket Ball Court and also a softball/baseball field.

The Gardens Park is where we like to hang out in the evenings.  They have a Farmer’s Market on Thursdays from 5pm-8pm.  We are at that park most Thursday, we like to get take out food from the Food Trucks and Dessert Truck.  It’s not a big market only a few vendors.  We’ve been going to it for a few years now started when I was visited my family often in the Summers.  The Gardens park is a great big park although it is not overcrowded.  We take our daughters on bike rides at the park. The walking path is an awesome place where they can practice more riding.

The Gardens Park is an 18-acre park that features lighted basketball courts, two lighted tennis courts, sand volleyball court, lighted bocce, horseshoe and shuffleboard courts, children’s play area, large open festival lawn area and picnic pavilions. Also located in the park is the Gardens Community Center that hosts a variety of classes and programs for residents.

Fox Hill Park is the Disneyland of all parks. It is ten minutes away from our home. While your kids are enjoying the play equipment you get to view the Las Vegas strip and the Mountains.  This is by far my favorite park of all.   The “adventure play-themed” park offers 20 play structures, including a 32-foot climbing tower, a zip line, a giant climbing structure called the Orange Beast, a disc golf course, custom swings, a climbing fort and a spinning machine. There are covered pavilions.  The park is 13 acres filled with tons of play, my daughters love this park as well as I. The scenery is beautiful, landscaping and not to mention the view is breathtaking.

We’ve explored many parks before and nothing compares to what we have close to home.  My  family and I enjoy going to the park and having picnics.  The community in which we live in gives up great pleasure to be able enjoy the parks and events.
