Description

Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs is located on the broad, flat northwestern edge of the Las Vegas Valley. The main park area sits on low rolling hills that are the result of spring deposits (mud) that have built up over the millennia. The springs feed four lakes and connecting steams, providing water for aquatic vegetation, trees, lawns, and Odonates. Beyond the ponds, the park stretches out into the open desert.
