My husband I came here at the recommendation of our son, a botanist. We're glad we did! There are so many unique, beautiful things to see. I love plants, and landscaping, and seeing the beautiful desert landscaping was great. It was hot, but it's Vegas, so we expected that. We didn't have time to see the entire area before we... More

Featured was an Eat or be Eaten dinosaur display. The animaltronic dinosaurs looked awesome and the interactive displays kept the kids interested. There was so much to learn and see for all of us. Thursday's feature a Famers Market and though small, the produce and other local items were great.

This was a great respite from the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas. My cousin wanted to learn more about desert plants and life, this was the perfect choice. While we were disappointed that the trails as was the butterfly exhibit were closed due to heat, we still spent an enjoyable morning exploring the exhibits. I would definitely recommend going...

This is a great place for the young and old to learn about the Las Vegas valley and how it was begun. The extensive gardens and displays show the indigenous plants and people and how they existed and survived.

We travelled out of town (less than $20 taxi) to Springs Preserve on the last day of our holiday. We'd checked out of the hotel and had 8 hours till our flight and thought drinking may not be the best plan, so Springs Preserve it was. It was split into many areas, easy to navigate and the people were helpful.... More

Great place to visit but I went when it was too hot out. The children had a great time. They did have a few closed of areas where you can go hide from the sun while checking out stuff. The state museum is there too so we got a nice break from the sun.

If you want to see plants that can thrive in the desert heat and enjoy other attractions, then Springs Preserve is a good place to spend a few hours. In addition to the gardens, they also have an exhibit that encourages recycling of your household waste and, for a limited time, a small exhibit of dinosaurs. There were two or... More

Al the staff that work here were really helpful and educated about the history of the preserve. I was disappointed the train and butterfly section was closed. I enjoyed the botanical garden are and the museums. This would be a great place for families and educational for young children.

We keep a membership with the preserve. The grandchildren love to ride e train around the trail. The exhibits in the museum change often and are very educational. Love the play area at the end of the day. The frequent variety of festivals are a great addition to our visits.
