In honor of National Public Lands Day Sept. 25, the city of Las Vegas offers free admission this Saturday to Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs, 9200 Tule Springs Road. Park hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The 680-acre park offers lush vegetation, ponds and views of the Sheep and Spring Mountain ranges. The historic Tule Springs Ranch is tucked inside the park and provides opportunities for visitors to learn about the traditional working ranch and early Las Vegas lifestyle. Fishing is allowed in the ponds, but a fishing license from the Nevada Department of Wildlife is required. Other park amenities include walking/jogging paths, horse trails, barbecue grills, reservable picnic areas, mountain bike trails and pump track for BMX and bike riders, volleyball court, restrooms and wildlife.
