Sparks Marina Park
This former gravel pit has been transformed by the city of Sparks into one of the nicest fishing areas around. With walking paths, trees and sandy beaches, this is a great place for a family outing. The lake has been stocked with trout, all catchable and trophy-sized. And the best feature is its proximity, only ten minutes from anywhere in Reno/Sparks. Admission is free, but one must have a valid Nevada fishing license when angling for trout. No gas engine watercraft are allowed. Rowboats, float tubes and electric motorcraft are permitted.
Swimming hours for the Marina are LAME!!!!! Why do we have such a beautiful place for the kids to hang out at and they are not allowed to swim?? Budget cuts? Or just poor planning!!!! Someone need to take a look at this problem.
I'm suprised they allow the kids to play on the slides????
I love walking around the Marina every day, I have no other safe place to walk. I have noticed that there are so many roller bladers & bicycle riders going very fast, with all of the older people walking it seems dangerous. Other than that it is lovely & kept very clean. J.T, Sparks NV
I run at the marina frequently and have enjoyed my time doing so. A flat 2-mile course, with plenty of sights to observe, and nothing but friendly people, the marina has become one of my favorite places to enjoy a morning run.
