Floyd Lamb State Park, Las Vegas, Nevada

One of the most incredible parts of fabulous Las Vegas has something to do with gaming or glittering lights, but mostly, has to do with its natural and man-made wonders. One of this is the Floyd Lamb State Park at Tule Springs, tucked away in northwest Las Vegas. It is a breathtaking oasis of lush vegetation, scenic views, serene lakes and bountiful wildlife, and it more than holds its own among the city’s more urban experiences.

The City of Las Vegas bought this land in 1964. The used-to-be Divorce Retreat House was then converted into a City Park and renamed in honor of state senator, Sen. Floyd Lamb. Today, Floyd Lamb State Park has 2,040 acres which include tree-shaded groves alongside four small fishing lakes, picnic areas, barbecues, scenic paths and volleyball and horseshoe facilities. Ducks, geese, chickens and peacocks are park residents. This place is fascinating!

Here are few of the pictures we have taken during our trip to Floyd Lamb State Park.

And here are the local residents... :)
