Find a Park in Washoe County

October 31, 2018

The Washoe County Health District’s Chronic Disease Prevention Program has teamed up with Washoe County’s GIS Technology Services to build an interactive regional parks directory promoting park usage in our community. A central goal of the Chronic Disease Prevention Program is to increase physical activity to reduce the overall chronic disease burden in Washoe County. Being physically active can help prevent many unhealthy conditions and illnesses such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

Until now, there had not been an easy way to find a park in our community. Instead park information was separated by jurisdiction and could be viewed on their respective websites. The new interactive directory now includes all parks in the Reno, Sparks and Washoe County all in one directory. Residents and visitors can search for park by amenity, name or location to identify a park that meets their needs. The directory also includes a trail finder for residents to explore the area and view the scenery of northern Nevada through hiking, biking, snowshoeing or horseback riding.

You can also check out the parks and trails information on NewToReno.com
