I went to this park very excited to see the sheep. They should make it clear, there are none until the weather is warmer. Most of the time they come down in later April. Great baseball park and awesome views of Lake Mead.

The park overlooked Lake Mead and with the big horn sheep ... it was magical! Had to remember the sheep are wild and keep your distance for your safety.

We stopped by this Hemenway Park and were skeptical, but we saw real bighorn sheeps. There were not many people, acutally more bighorn sheeps than humans at this particular time. It was in the afternoon during summer. I believe we were here around 3PM. They...More

We came here after the Santa Train ride. The kids packed their lunches. We spread out a tablecloth to avoid the bighorn sheep droppings. The playground was built for kids. The grandson's remarks were "Better than eating at a restaurant. " 37 bighorns strolled around...More
