For what purpose are you seeking the park?

Around 2,000,000 people live in the Las Vegas metro area. It may come as a shock to some people but there are the same amenities as you'll find in any other city of that size, including parks!

If you tell us where you're staying and whether or not you'll have a car, you'll get advice and recommendations on where is best. The Vegas residents who post on here are usually the best resource for this kind of information.

Hi

If your thinking on the lines of Hyde Park type of thing, no. Parks that tourists go to are state parks eg Valley of Fire. Well worth a visit, but you will need a car.

we are stopping at the Tropicana for 10 days and the reason I asked about a park is just for a "walk in the park", we always find a nice park is peaceful, and as we are not young anymore I thought it may be nice break from the hectic life around the strip, and no we will not have a car

Actually Clive, there are a few parks more along the lines of a Hyde Park kind of park rather than a state park. First one that comes to mind is Sunset Park http://local.yahoo.com/info-20289841-sunset-park-las-vegas;_ylt=ApNmSme1IvnbP6rknBxVhPqHNcIF;_ylv=3?csz=Las+Vegas%2C+NV But without being a local, I couldn't tell you if it's a good one to go to etc. Also OP, if you don't have a car, I don't know how you'd get there, maybe someone who knows the area well could advise better.

Hi

Debbi had a look at the pics, as I said not exactly Hyde park,lol. It's a desert, don't forget.

Without a car your fairly well restricted to the strip. You can of course use the buses to get around but that can make hard work of things.

Lol Clive! I didn't say it was like Hyde Park, that was your description to try and find out what kind of park the OP was after!

OK, so we've gathered it is a recreational park (not a national park) she's after, and that's what Sunset Park is.

Hi

There is a nature park on the edge of lake Mead. I think you drive to the end of Flamingo to get to it, I've never been myself. Again without a car it would be hard work getting there.

I'm always pushing The Springs Preserve. Not a "park" exactly, but still an oasis in the middle of the city. I believe you can still walk their trails and grounds for free (donations are appreciated). Very beautiful landscaping and everything is labeled.

We try to go every trip just as a break from the rush of everything in the city. You can see the line of casinos on the strip from the trails. Exhibits and buildings cost to get into, but are very good as well. We've always found a lot of school groups there. Christmas is beautiful with lights everywhere outdoors.

I think it would be a short, inexpensive cab from the north end of the strip.
