Sparks Marina Park

300 Howard Drive
Sparks, NV 89434


With walking paths, trees and sandy beaches surrounding a 77-acre lake, the Sparks Marina Park located at 300 Howard Drive is a great place for an outing! The Marina contains an estimated 1 billion gallons of water with a naturally occurring aquifer that replenishes the lake with 2 to 3 million gallons of fresh water daily. All this water is put to good use for recreational activities from windsurfing and sailing to swimming and scuba diving to fishing and boating. Additional activities and facilities include a lineup of special events, a dog park, volleyball courts, playgrounds, picnic areas, and showers. A concession stand is also open during the summer months.

For everyone's safety and enjoyment, please follow the rules posted at the facility. You can also download the Multiple Use Rules here. Overall, respect for each other, common courtesy and following the "rules of the road" will go a long way toward a positive visit/experience. If you have questions or concerns regarding the park, a Park Ranger can be contacted at 775.691.9130 between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. If a non-emergency occurs and the Park Ranger is unavailable, call the Sparks Police Department at 775.353.2231. For all emergencies call 911.
