Park Pond is located in Lorenzi Park in northwest Las Vegas and operated by the
City of Las Vegas. The location of the
pond was the site of historic Twin Lakes, one of the original major spring
systems that fed Las Vegas Wash before the valley was settled. The site was developed in the 1930s,
originally as a private ranch and recreation site and later as a municipal
park. Lorenzi Park Pond was originally
two smaller ponds, but was improved and deepened in the 1970s to make a single
pond that appears today. In 2013, the
pond was renovated once again with improved landscaping and picnic areas. It has been used as an urban fishery since
the 1980s and supplies irrigation water for park landscaping.
Park Pond is approximately 3 acres, has a maximum depth of 10 feet, and is
accessible to angling around the entire pond.
Water quality is generally good, but the level can vary depending on
irrigation needs. The pond is subject to
seasonal algae blooms resulting from warm temperatures and nutrients from
numerous waterfowl. The primary game
fish are rainbow trout and channel catfish, which are stocked seasonally. After the most recent renovation of the pond,
the City of Las Vegas stocked bluegill and largemouth bass. Small spinners, Power Bait, salmon eggs, and
flies can be effective for rainbow trout.
No overnight camping is allowed, but there are improved day use areas
with restrooms, shade shelters, picnic tables, and barbecues. There is no fee to use the park.
Boats and other flotation devices, including float tubes, are prohibited on Lorenzi Park Pond.
Lorenzi Park is located on Washington Avenue in Las Vegas, west of Rancho Drive and 1 mile east of Decatur Boulevard, north of the US 95 freeway. Direct access and parking for the fishing pond is through park entrances on Twin Lakes Drive, which is the west boundary of the park that connects to Washington Avenue.
