Stopped by the other day with my grandson. He loves playing on the gym equipment. It offers a fantastic view of the lake. I fact a lot of people have their weddings here. The sheep have been here most of the year. All we ask is that you limit your watching at the park and not drive around the neighborhoods... More

This is the place to go to see bighorn sheep. They like to hang out in the grassy area near the kiddie slides, although sometimes a few are munching the grass right on the side of Highway 93. If you've never seen the herd, the few minutes you'd go out of your way is worth the chance of seeing them.... More

If you build a city, you would think wildlife would take the hint. But in Boulder City, the bighorn sheep know where the best grass is. Morning and evening shows daily. Don't get close, but you won't see this at most attractions.

Just before getting to Lake Vegas (great view of lake from here) there is a neighborhood where the mountain rams come down from the mountain and munch on the residents' landscaping. They LOVE the berries on the china berry trees. They just roam around - all over the place. Interesting and fun to see. Quick 10 minute side trip.

I was recently on a visit to Las Vegas. We were on a group tour to Hoover Dam. On our way back our bus driver took us by Hemenway Park to possibly view the bighorn sheep. We did not see them; however our bus driver related a tall tail to us. It seems that monthly during certain months, the bighorn... More

Sometimes, you have one of those magical experiences. This morning, just after dawn, I took a short hike from our hotel in Boulder City, NV, with a friend - we were photo hunting Bighorn Sheep! They live in the hills above Lake Mead, but, early in the morning, they often come down from the hills to graze on the lush... More

It's not 100% that they will be here, but if they are you are in for a treat. Wild animals co-existing in a pretty park with kids on swings and picnicking families. Who knew? Amazing photo ops.

Perfect location to stop off on the way back to Vegas. We stopped and sat around, watching the bighorn sheep graze around the park. Would be a great spot for a lovely picnic lunch as there is shade and tables available.

Came here with a friend, stayed about an hour and just relaxed in the grass. It was fun. We saw a bunch of rams. If you get too close they will walk away, but I managed to get like within 10 feet of them and take some pictures to show friends on facebook.

I read what other people said but was having trouble believing it. Drove to a tiny park in Boulder City and there were about 40 Bighorn Sheep lying in the grass. You can get pretty close to take photos with a backdrop of Lake Mead. Definitely worth a few minute detour if you are on your way to Lake Mead... More
