Southern Nevada is an outdoor gem waiting to be discovered and the community is invited to Lorenzi Park on Saturday, Oct. 15 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for Get Outdoors Nevada Day for a day of exploration. Exhibitors will showcase the latest in recreation opportunities, from park and picnic fun to adrenaline filled activities. The free family-friendly event will feature food vendors, demos, live music and more!
Whether you’re already an outdoor enthusiast, looking to do something fun or want to learn something new, here are a few ways to get started:
- Learn about the outdoor places near you. Neighborhood parks are great for walks, picnics and an unexpected kickball match. The City of Henderson, City of Las Vegas, City of North Las Vegas and Clark County Parks and Recreation will be available to talk about outdoor spaces that are right at our fingertips. Plan to pick up free Regional Trail Maps and Public Lands of Southern Nevada maps from the Outside Las Vegas Foundation booth.
