Nice little park near Virginia Lake

I enjoyed the walk around Virginia Lake; about 1 mile total. The park is cute, more for kids, and does have restroom facilities.

I lived right next door to the park in AN APARTMENT COMMUNITY for 2 years! If you want to walk or run for a bit its ok but unless they started to clean it up and clean up all the bird poop that collects (ALOT) then i would not recommend it to anyone. The ONLY reason i gave it 2... More

It is a nice place to walk your dog or go for an evening walk. The track is not very clean since they have a lot of ducks and seagulls around. Huge presence of seagulls gives a feel of a beach. If I have an option I would go to Sparks Marina instead. Good place overall for an hour walk... More

This is one of Reno's eyesores. It needs serious attention. The dog park is disgusting. It could be a really cute park if they cleaned it up.

I love that Virginia Lake is smack dab in the middle of Reno! I enjoy walking the 1 mile loop 3 times. I love the several species of water fowl as well as the resident swan.

Outdoor parks and recreation are not the strong suit of a town that wants to keep you inside their casinos; and Virginia Lake Park is not going to draw many tourists from the casino floors. A dirty lake surrounded with dead vegetation and a fair number of homeless. Not much city pride here.
