The Valley certainly offers a number of fine spots for urban recreating, but we’re giving the nod to Floyd Lamb Park. Not only is it a lush, green oasis in the desert, it’s also got a cool backstory. The park is centered on Tule Springs, a geologic feature that’s been popular since the Pleistocene era, as evidenced by the fossils found there. At one point, it was a watering hole for Indians and prospectors, and in more recent times, it was a dude ranch popular with Hollywood types waiting out the required six weeks before they could get a divorce, Nevada-style. Today you can fish in the four lakes, tour the preserved ranch buildings or just enjoy the feeling of grass under your toes and shade on your face. 9200 Tule Springs Road, 229-8100.
