About Lazy 5 Regional Park

Like other places around the Truckee Meadows, Lazy 5 Regional Park was named after a ranch that formerly occupied the area. This park offers multiple opportunities for a wide variety of recreational activities. The grounds have green grass and lots of trees, making for a nice break from the surrounding desert landscape. Lazy 5 Regional Park is administered by Washoe County Regional Parks and Open Space. There are no entrance or parking fees. For more information, call the park ranger at (775) 424-1866.

The Spanish Springs branch of the Washoe County Library is right next to Lazy 5 Regional Park and reached from the same entrance.
