History of the Floyd Lamb Park
When the city of Las Vegas first reached the property of the Floyd Lamb Park, they immediately declared it as a park in the 1964, and it was renamed to the current name in 1977 after falling under control of the state. The park was named after the current senator of Las Vegas at that time, Floyd Lamb, who later confessed that he took a bribe of $23,000 for the park.
In 2005, the city regained control of the park, and on July 2007 the park’s name was Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs, and it came all together with a package of 5 km2 of the Bureau of Land Management land.

Fishing in the park
First let us know that the Association of Fishermen of Floyd Lamb Park has been created recently, with which we are collaborating and from here we send our best wishes. We think that they are a fundamental sector in the conservation of the marine environment, since they present a deep knowledge of the sea and its species, endorsed by thousands of years of fishing tradition, are those that day by day are in the sea working and its objective, like ours, is the conservation of the marine biodiversity. We hope this resource will continue for many years, so that your children and their children can continue fishing, and ours continue to consume quality fish. is the conservation of marine biodiversity?
