This is a lovely well maintained park in the town of Genoa. There are picnic tables and public barbecues, a nice sidewalk to walk on and well kept public restrooms. A great example for other cities to follow.

Small, quiet park where I had my morning meditation. There are a few plaques and a tiny museum as well as a few places to sit and enjoy your morning cup of joe.

This is a small, but very interesting museum and historic park. It is Nevada's first known settlement. The staff were very helpful in answering questions.

If my memory serves me correctly, my friend and I visited the small fort on the last day of the season, which was around October 11th. There are outdoor parts of the park that would be open all year round I suspect. Hope... More
