A nationally recognized birdwatching area, Swan Lake Nature Study Area is just minutes from the greater Reno-Sparks area. Swan Lake is a designated Important Bird Area because of its unusually diverse population of birds, including swans. A 600-foot long boardwalk takes visitors into the wetlands area. The park also features a number of hiking trails and a portable restroom.
