A great place to just take a walk and people watch. Clean environment. Water is calming. Facility is well maintained. The beach is clean and never know what one will see.

This is a great example of mining reclamation. It use to be a big hole in the ground, a gravel pit. With the help of a flood in 1997 it became a small lake. I only gave it 4 stars because there is currently some...More

We walk our dog there most every day, weather permitting. It's an awesome family park, feel very safe there too. Wish they would frequent the park more in the evenings, and get rid of the homeless they lay around. Do not like that situation. Need...More

We were able to enjoy this amazing park while we were staying at the Sparks Marina RV Park. It’s a wonderful way to get exercise, enjoy the shopping center, restaurants, even a movie theater that are all close by, but the biggest enjoyment for us...More

The marina is a great place for a walk or ride around the marina. Great kids playground with restrooms close by. Plenty of parking with wonderful views. Not recommended when it's dark.

We live a mile from the Sparks Marina and we walk here every day , and take a stroll around the loop, which is a 2-mile loop. We see dog walkers, regular walkers, skaters, skateboarders, bicyclists, and children on scooters. This is a great family...More

Stopped in here to check things out while staying at the hotel nearby. Some things closed up for the season I guess. Pretty place there though and a beach and geese and such. Nice views. Will have to return during the "warm season".

Beautiful Marina and park! Wish we could have extended our stay just to spend the day there swimming and bbqing! But absolutely loved the walking trail around the park! We walked it every night while visiting!

We stayed at a hotel/casino next to the marina. It was nice to take a walk with the dog through the park after a long day's drive. There's walkways, grass, tables, sand, beach volleyball nets and, of course, water. Very nice park.

It was great surprise to find this marina park. We were staying at Western Village. After breakfast I went for a walk around this lake. It was autumn cold and enjoyable.
