Enjoyed the 2-mile walk around the lake on wide paths in a landscaped park setting. Has a very large fenced dog park covered with green grass lawn. Situated on the east side of large, modern outlets mall.

Very nice area to walk pets in the early morning and evening. Plenty of doggy poop bags and grass. Could do a little better on cleaning up the Canada goose poop.

Great place to escape for a few or spend the day at the "beach" in Nevada. Very nice place for a stroll around this man made lake. Dog friendly with an area dedicated to our furry friends!

We love to take our Newfoundland for a walk here, great views of the lake and mountains. Nice little coffee shop 1/2 way around the lake. Plenty of benches along the way to rest. Restrooms are always clean and well maintained.

We went to Sparks/Reno for the casinos but you have to do something else. We went down to this nice little park and enjoyed it. It wasn’t spectacular but it is definitely worth doing after the amount of casinos we visited.

Sparks Marina is a really nice urban park run by the City of Sparks. However, the photo of someone on a jet ski is a bit misleading. It's a small lake and only non-motorized or boats with electric motors are allowed. The only time jet...More

The marina is a fu*king dump, and any fish that you would possibly pull out of there would be mutant and/or contaminated.
