This 325-acre regional park is the most popular public park in Southern Nevada. It has been the perennial “Best of Las Vegas” Review-Journal pick for the past five years and was selected “Best Park” by Vegas Seven magazine and Yelp.com in 2010. The land for Sunset Park was acquired in 1967 and contains the last remaining dunes of what once covered most of Paradise Valley. More than 200 plant species in the Mojave Desert are found nowhere else on the planet and many of them are preserved at Sunset. The park is also home to abundant wildlife. It is one of the last habitats for Phainopopla, a tiny black-crested bird with red eyes that lives among the mesquite trees. Sunset Park was once home to early ranchers. Paiutes inhabited the site a thousand years ago and greeted visitors who sought to trade seeds, nuts and turquoise. Water continues to flow under the park and surfaces to provide irrigation to the entire west end of Sunset. Sunset Park offers numberous urban park amenities such as shaded picnin areas, enhanced walking trails, a splash pad feature, modern playgrounds, barbeque grills, fields, and open spaces. The park is a great place to enjoy a bike ride or walk. Bicycle rentals and sports/fishing equipment are available to the public.
