What We Do

The Clark County Parks and Lands Division strengthens a high quality of life for the entire community.


We envision a Clark County rich in natural resources, parklands, and open spaces, which sustain and support our local community, economy, and quality of life. To achieve this vision, we strive to

  • Provide quality parks, lands and recreational experiences to all of Clark County.
  • Facilitate and engage in environmental programs to maximize ecosystem services.
  • Empower our employees to be innovative collaborators and problem-solvers.
  • Utilize an open and honest communication both internally and externally focused on sustainability, inclusion and equity.
