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 Verdi Pond.
