Sparks offers residents and visitors a wide array of services and activities. Sparks was reported as the fastest growing city in Nevada between 1999 - 2008 and continues to grow. Quality of life is cited as one of the main reasons people relocate to the Sparks area. Summer and winter outdoor activities abound!
Sparks is known as the premiere special events venue for all of northern Nevada with attractions on our Victorian Square bringing thousands of visitors to such annual events as Hometown Farmer’s Market, Hot August Nights, Best in the West (Nugget) Rib Cook-off and Hometowne Christmas.
Sparks is also well known for its outstanding Parks and Recreation system designed to appeal to young and old alike, with numerous neighborhood parks, regional sports facilities and an unusually large number of fun and exciting recreation programs for pre-schoolers to senior citizens.
Another wonderful destination park is the picturesque Sparks Marina. Eighty acres of water accommodate swimming, boating, fishing, scuba diving and picnicking facilities, and breath-taking views of the nearby mountains. Few other cities in the country can offer such an amenity to its residents and visitors.
As the city continues to develop as the ideal tourist and local destination, the newest addition is The Legends at Sparks Marina. Currently under construction, the Legends project is to be a shopping experience unlike any other in northern Nevada. In addition to the exciting group of retail, restaurant and entertainment options, The Legends also provides an enjoyable educational feature ideal for locals and visitors. Expected completion in spring 2010, the first phase opens in fall 2008 including Scheels All-Sports Store, the largest total sports store in the world!
The Legends honors legends of Nevada in athletics, music, exploration, science, technology, politics, art and much more, recognizing the people who truly have made the area unique. The Legends theme is interwoven through the landscape, hardscape, amenities and architectural motif, offering an experience in Nevada’s history, heritage and environment.
