Very nice area for taking a nature walk, especially for families/young kids. The paths are either sidewalk or very well maintained gravel paths. We went early in the morning and were able to see some wildlife, rabbits, roadrunner, blue heron, turtles. Wild highly recommend for a light walking activity and give the family something to do outdoors.
I love this park. It's one of the closest, natural parks vegas has to offer with miles and miles of trails. There are plenty of plants, ponds, rivers, streams, and wildlife to see. It's essentially an oasis. The education center is also really fun with lots of things to interact with. It's very educational with information on Las Vegas' history. However absolutely do not go unprepared. In the middle of summer temperatures can reach high peaks. Take water, wear cool clothing, and do not go during the hottest part of day. The park has little shade to offer.
