Tule Springs Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The gated community of Tule Springs in northwest Las Vegas was constructed in 2001-2002. Adjacent to the Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs, the neighborhood is bounded by Moccasin to the north, Grand Teton to the south, Tenaya Way to the east, and Fort Apache to the west. Its serene atmosphere and large single-family homes are big attractions, as is its low crime rate.
With largely native landscaping, the homes in the Tula Springs neighborhood have large lots with beautiful desert views. Some homes abut the Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs. Even residents who are farther away from the park can easily enjoy its many lovely features.
Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs (known as Floyd Lamb State Park prior to 2007) contains some of the best examples of Pleistocene paleontology in the country, with fossils of mammoth, giant sloth, horse, and bison.
Another piece of local history can be experienced at the Tule Springs Ranch, located within the park. This “dude ranch” from the 1940s was created to provide a place of residency for those seeking a speedy way out of their marriages. The quick divorce became as popular during that time as the Vegas wedding chapels are today. Twenty-three of the original ranch buildings remain.
Other park assets include four fishing lakes well stocked with rainbow trout, as well as horseshoe pits, volleyball courts, and barbecue facilities. Consistently rated a Las Vegas favorite, the Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs offers hiking, bird watching, and horseback riding. It’s an oasis in the desert, and locals flock here to get away from the bright lights. Community events such as the Las Vegas Celtic Games and the Highland Gathering are often held at the park.
