Beautiful State parks densely packed with natural and historical areas
Beautiful State parks densely packed with natural and historical areas surround the Centennial Hills community in Las Vegas Valley’s northwest corner. One of the more recent master-planned developments, Centennial Hills caters to families and individuals who appreciate convenient access to the area’s natural playgrounds. With a plethora of different types of residences, from townhomes and condominiums to single-family dwellings, to million-dollar horse ranch properties, there is something for every taste and budget. Families keep busy on the weekends picnicking, playing sports, fishing, camping, and even exploring historical sites in one of the three major state parks in the area. The 680-acre Floyd Lambert State Park is a great place to explore native wildlife and vegetation, and anglers can enjoy hours of catch-and-release fishing in its many lakes. In Centennial Hills Park, the 3,000-seat outdoor amphitheatre hosts musical events, theater, and movie nights in the summer months and also offers many uniquely-designed playgrounds for picnicking and recreation. Speaking of playgrounds, Wet n’ Wild, a 41-acre water park is just around the corner from Centennial Hills, and features both heart-stopping water slides and calming wave pools to cool off on hot summer days in the desert. With a YMCA, library, and hospital in the center of town, as well as nearby restaurants, shopping, and cafes, there is plenty to do in this thriving location. Only 20 miles north of downtown Las Vegas, you’re still close enough to dabble in the bright lights and bustling city life while enjoying an amazing high-desert outdoor lifestyle.
