Springs Preserve

Las Vegas Springs Preserve is an 180 acre park located only a few miles from downtown Las Vegas. The Preserve is built around the original water source for the City and is owned and operated by the Las Vegas Valley Water District. Only the remnants of the Las Vegas Springs can be seen at ground level, but the area also includes a botanical garden, museums, event venues, and a series of walking trails that combined for 1.8 miles. 

On this hike, we walked past the outdoor concert venue and explored a historic spring mound and some of the remaining wells that were used to bring water to the surface. The trail system winds through a drainage next to the preserve and is hot in the summer heat – so plan accordingly. Once you finish your hike, you can cool off in the air conditioned buildings nearby or check out a very interesting and fully sustainable desert house that was built by UNLV architecture students for $200K.
