Vegas locals voted this the best place to spot wildlife in the area, and it's easy to see why. Dozens of different species call the park home, from beavers to birds and beyond. There are also many miles of paved and graveled trails in the park. It really is a beautiful spot, with the Rainbow Mountains forming a vivid backdrop to the ponds and trails of the wetlands. County school children visit the park on field trips from October through April, so if you're planning a visit during that time, call ahead to make sure the park is accessible. The park is located at the end of East Tropicana just north of the Silver Bowl. It's open dawn to dusk every day, and the Information Center is open 7 days a week 9:00 to 3:00pm.
