NileGuide Expert tip:
Tule Springs is rich with history. The springs have been drawing people and animals for thousands of years.
- Floyd Lamb Park was first known as Tule Springs, back in the days when its waters attracted early settlers. Several early buildings are still standing, although they are not open for tours. The grassy park, dotted with mature trees, is a treasure in Las Vegas. Peacocks wander the grounds, and can be very insistent about being fed; exercise caution if you've got small children. The park sometimes has horseback riding, and there is an equestrian portion of the park if you have your own horse. Fishing is permitted in the park's ponds, with a Nevada Fishing License.
Massive fossil beds around Tule Springs have prompted calls for more protection of the park's 2,040 acres. This is a place where you can pack a lunch and wander for the entire day, soaking up history and beauty.
