Get out and play with the entire family!

See the links below for specific parks in the Northern Nevada, Reno-Tahoe area.

There are plenty of local and regional parks in our area to take advantage of, and a lot of ways for the whole family to get fit and have fun, too. Begin by thinking of what activities you and your family or friends can do together. Many parks offer a wide range of recreational outlets, including basketball courts, kickball areas or even soccer fields. Pack along a few fun items– such as a football, Frisbee, tennis rackets, croquet set or bicycles– and your day is set. Be sure to bring along some healthy snacks or a picnic lunch to keep your energy up and your body hydrated. Friends and athletics are a great way to set the stage for a longer and healthier life, while at the same time saving you a little money on electricity with the home TV in the off position.
