Parks: The crown jewel of Clark County's park system, Sunset Park has served the Las Vegas valley since 1967. Park expansions over the years have developed 185 of the 323 total acres, making Sunset the largest and the most distinguished park in town. An oasis in the desert, it offers something for everyone including tennis, volleyball and basketball courts, softball fields, a disc golf course, dog park, playground, shaded picnic areas, lake--fish included--and plenty of open space. You can even go fishing in the like. The most recent expansion includes the addition of walking trails meandering through natural mesquite and dunes areas. Sunset Park is also home to the last remaining natural dunes that once dominated the southern end of the Las Vegas valley, and it's large, old trees are a rarity in the area.
