Virginia Lake Park

An Oasis in Reno's Urban Landscape

By

Reno's Virginia Lake Park is like an oasis in the middle of the city. Surrounded by the urban environs of Reno which has spread around it, Virginia Lake and its park provide a calm and quiet

Virginia Lake Park was actually south of Reno when it was built by the CCC during the depression 1930s. The park has not moved since then, the city has grown around it. Though originally designed for swimming, Virginia Lake is now only for viewing or fising from a new dock. Ducks, geese, and gulls, many of which have become permanent residents, are now the only ones in the water. Strolling, however, has been enhanced by recent upgrades to the landscaping and walking paths.place to walk, jog, have a picnic, or just relax in the shade and enjoy the view across the water.

Well behaved dogs on leash are welcome here and can romp at the Virginia Lake Park Dog Park.
