|LAS VEGAS SPRINGS PRESERVE
The Las Vegas Springs Preserve is a 180-acre cultural attraction located a
few miles off the Las Vegas Strip that features botanical gardens, trails,
museums, galleries and entertainment venues. While there is a charge to visit
the museums and galleries, the trails and gardens (as well as a terrific
children's playground) are free to the public!
Four trails at the Springs Preserve lead visitors through both a cultural and
environmental history of the Las Vegas Valley. The trails are open daily from
10 am until dusk. Each trail features interpretive displays allowing visitors to
experience the Springs Preserve in its natural environment. Discover how
Native Americans, early settlers and Mormon missionaries relied on the
Springs to survive. More than 1.8 miles of trails wind through picturesque
landscapes and lead to the Preserve's cienega, a desert wetland that serves
as a tranquil home for hundreds of native plant, bird and animal species.
The eight-acre botanical Gardens at the Springs Preserve features a wide
range of desert landscapes and demonstrate native and non-native desert
plant life with interpretive stations and hands-on activities. Unique features of
the garden include the Watering Can Theater for irrigation instruction, the
Tool Shed Theater, a children's theater featuring molded mushroom-shaped
chairs, a weather station with real-time weather data, the Enabling Garden,
which demonstrates options for people who have physical challenges, and the
Frame House, a 70-seat kitchen area for outdoor cooking demonstrations.
