I've never been to that particular park, but it is certainly possible. There are bighorn sheep all over in the nearby mountains.They come out of the hills looking for food and water, and that park probably has both. Lots of grass and water. They are wild, so don't get too close to them.

There are a ton of bighorn sheep that hang out in this park. Cannot tell you exactly when they will be there or how many will be around, but it's usually quite a few at any given time.

It's on the way from Vegas to Hoover Dam, so an easy stop if that's where you're headed.

We just returned from Las Vegas and every year we make a visit to Hemenway Park to see the Big Horn Sheep. On Sunday there was about two dozen sheep with many young ones. One sheep looked like it was only a few months old.We read a story on the Las Vegas Journal that the US Wildlife Department moved 11 Rams from there natural area in Boulder to a park area in Reno. The reason given, the dogs were afraid of the sheep. I did see a sign that no dogs were allowed in the park.

We were there on Thursday & there were lots of them, including some babies.

Watch out for the poop on the sidewalk.
