Craig Ranch Regional Park Logo

After three years and $130 million, the Craig Ranch Regional Park is finally open to the public.  The park is located on the north side of Craig Road between North Commerce Street and Revere Street.  Parking entrances are off Craig, Commerce, and Lone Mountain Road.

This park is approximately 170 acres in size with a further expansion of an additional 70 acres planned for the future.  The land for the park was originally settled by early Vegas pioneers in 1905 and was farmed by the McFarland family until 1925.  After they abandoned the ranch, George Craig and his family took over and continued farming there until the 1960s when they sold it to John Stimson who turned the ranch into a golf course which he operated until 2005 when it was taken over by the city of North Las Vegas.

Please respect the park hours which are from 6:00 AM to 11:00 PM.

The park is well lit at night, but that doesn't mean we need an LPC every 528 feet. 
No Lamp Post Caches!



This cache is located just outside the current fenced border of the park. At some point in the future, this will be part of the next 70 acre expansion.  For those of you who remember or once golfed here when it was the Craig Ranch Golf Course, the raised mound of dirt to the north of this cache was once the 18th green of the course. The old course


"Green is the Colour" was a track on Pink Floyd's 1969 album, More, which was the soundtrack to the movie of the same name.  The movie dealt with heroin addiction on Ibiza, an island of the Mediterranean coast of Spain. It was the first album by Pink Floyd without its colorful founding member Syd Barrett who had become erratic and unpredictable and was dropped from the band.
