An Oasis Amidst the Chaos

    Las Vegas is full of fun activities ranging from casinos to restaurants to nightclubs and everything in between. This desert city contains all kinds of parks with desert landscape, but Floyd Lamb Park is a bit different. With a grassy lawn, cottonwood trees and a pond, the park may seem out of place, but it’s a true oasis in the city.

    The park provides many features including:

    • •    Picnic Areas with Barbecues
    • •    Volleyball
    • •    Horseshoe Pits
    • •    Scenic Trails
    • •    Four Stocked Ponds

    Fish in the ponds or just enjoy a little quiet in the city that never sleeps.

    Tule Springs Ranch

    Another attraction of the park is Tule Springs Ranch. This is one of the best Pleistocene paleontologist sites in the western part of the continent. The area was home to many large prehistoric mammals many years ago and plenty of fossils still exist here today. Fossils from bison, camels, sloths, mammoths, horses and more are often found throughout the area.
