Reno, Sparks, and Washoe County have parks, hundreds of acres of them. Name just about any human sporting, recreation, or relaxing endeavor, and there's probably an area park in which to engage your activity (or lack thereof). There are even dog parks, lest Fido be left out of the fun. Go to the respective Web sites for information on the what and where of our park scene.
