Lorenzi Park Pond

Lorenzi Park Pond is located in Lorenzi Park in near downtown 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.

Pertinent Information

Lorenzi 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.
