Reno has a surprising number of parks and public areas both within the city and surrounding the city. From wilderness areas and hiking trails to whitewater kayaking parks, this member of Tree City USA has a place where you can relax and enjoy some nature. Just steps from the casinos are several popular parks including Wingfield Park on (and in) the Truckee River. Also in the Wingfield area is the Truckee River Whitewater Park which is a tubing and kayaking paradise in the summer and fall. For great special events like the Great Reno Balloon Race and Food Truck Friday, visit Rancho San Rafael near the University of Nevada, Reno and Idlewild Park near the River. If you are looking for some hiking or walking paths, the Tahoe Pyramid Bikeway runs from Verdi into Sparks along the river and the Hunter Creek trail will take you into the foothills of this high desert city.
