In the mid-1980s, on the western fringe Las Vegas, a planned community was developed to include a newly created man-made lake now known as Lake Sahara. The original development encompassed two square miles with Lake Sahara, ponds, and tributaries covering nearly 30 acres. Today, residents of The Lakes enjoy a wide selection of Las Vegas residences ranging from starter homes to multimillion-dollar estates.
As the boundary of the Las Vegas Valley extends, The Lakes has become very popular for its convenient location and access to major roadways and The Strip.
For many, life around The Lakes, Las Vegas surrounds water sports and nature. As the largest body of water on the west side of Las Vegas, Lake Sahara attracts migratory birds that stop to rest and feed before continuing their cross-country journeys. Geese, swans, herons, ducks, seagulls, pelicans, and some eccentric “coots,” or mud hens, make The Lakes their temporary home each year.
