Crystal Peak Park is just west of Verdi on Old Highway 40, ten miles west of Reno. This 56 acre park is characterized by large shade trees along the Truckee River. The roadways and parking lots are paved, providing direct access to the river. Five individual picnic sites plus 2 small group areas (non-reservable) are available as well as restrooms facilities. Stroll along the interpretive loop trail and learn about the rich history of the park grounds. Fishing is available at both the river and the newly renovated Verdi Ponds.
Crystal Peak Park is home to over one hundred diverse birds, insects, animals, trees and plants. Click here to view a list of species identified and compiled during a spring 2017 BioBlitz with Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation.
