Sunny path around a relatively crowded park. Frequently windy. Great cafe called Lighthouse on the eastern side of the park if you want a drink or snack.

This is a wonderful super easy walk for you, the kids and the dogs. There are a lot of people sometimes, but if you go early in the morning you can avoid this. There are a lot of baby birds right now and you can also see squirrels and rabbits. On occasion there is an eagle that visits as well.

A nice walk in Sparks city limits with a lot of parking. The paved path traverse from the mall to the interstate to the new condos. A park for kids, a beach area, restrooms, a dog park, and lots of benches are available all the way around. This is home to a number of ducks and geese and the ground is covered in their droppings. In the spring it's fun to see the hatchlings!

This is a nice paved loop trail. Lots of wildlife to see.. turtles, ducks, geese, fish, squirrels.. people walking their dogs.. there is also a coffee shop on the east side of the trail on the side where the outlet mall is.... it’s called lighthouse coffee. Great coffee. It’s a very easy walk.

It's a nice but crowded walk. If you're looking for a quick and easy stroll in town then this is perfect. Not bad, but nothing too special about it.
