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 in the East Meadow section of the park where holes 11 and 12 used to be when it was a golf course.  The course was lined with over 6000 trees along side its 6000+ yards of fairways.  Many of these trees are still standing today and are used as separators between the different sections of the park.  The East Meadow is a great place for throwing a frisbee or playing some football. Satellite view of course


"Grantchester Meadows" was the second track on Pink Floyd's experimental 1969 album, Ummagumma, and was written and performed entirely by Roger Waters.  The lyrics describe a pastoral scene at the Grantchester meadows and is one of many Pink Floyd songs that are praises of the countryside.
