General History:

Lazy 5 park gets its name from a ranch that was previously operated in the area; the ranch got its name from the symbol they used to brand their animals, as most people thought it looked like a sideways ‘5’. The upper area of the park - where the community center, waterpark, playground, and skatepark are located, opened in 2001. 

 

The park expands beyond the upper area including hiking trails spanning over the 85-acres Washoe County owns, and this opened in 2007. Early in 2019, the park saw another addition of ‘The Hive’ which replaced the sand and salt dome that was adjacent to the skateparks.
