... if you don't know much about the Mohave Desert environment and the history of Las Vegas. It would be a fun place to tour with kids - there are a lot of opportunities for them to have fun while learning something. Strollers and wheelchairs are available. One warning - the ticketing is NOT well-coordinated, so be sure to understand... More

This is a lovely place to visit and spend the day, especially with kids. This park is vast and landscaped to the local desert terrain. It is full of desert blooms, hardscape and attractions for families, groups and children. Wonderful art and interactive exhibits, beautiful views, play areas. Do stop and have a delicious lunch at the restaurant run by... More

With 2 free days offered for admission, it was time for my annual check-in to the Las Vegas Springs Preserve. In the heat of the summer, many of the plants were dying back, showing signs of chlorosis (leaves turning yellow), and dead fruit was rotting in some of the plant beds, but hey, maybe they have a program to feed...

Very interesting attraction. Lots of info to take in. Not real good for very young children as the attractions require more interaction.

We enjoyed all the indoor activities. There's a lot to look at, explore and play. State museum is closed on Monday's and residents of Nevada receive entry discount.

We saw many species of great birds, rabbits a... More

ADA ready for your visit. They have a drop off area and wheelchairs for your use. Only visited the 2 air conditioned areas. Worth your time and well developed. May return in the future, butterfly area closed- to hot to include the open areas. We spent about 2 hours on just the 2 buildings. Plan for more to see more

Easily accessible from the freeway and adjacent to the large Meadows shopping mall - the Springs Preserve is a combination exhibit hall and outdoor gardens AND includes a very good Nevada State Museum which is for all ages while the Preserve itself is for the younger set. LOTS to see and do and there is a (pricey) restaurant on the... More

This place really has something for everyone. The live animals and science type crafts and exhibits are excellent. I would suggest wearing good shoes and packing accordingly for the elements. Some of the exhibits are outside and there are some hills and stairs. Look for discounts and special events. Some times they have some really neat special events throughout the... More
