Sparks, NV, is located in Washoe County, just east of Reno. Founded in 1904 and incorporated the following year, the city is named for John Sparks, governor of Nevada in the early 20th century. Sparks today covers almost 36 square miles of land with a population of more than 104,000 people under the motto, “It’s Happening Here.”
Sparks has been nicknamed “The Rail City” and the “City of Promise.” It was a small town until the 1950s, when Reno’s economic growth led to a housing boom. The Nugget Casino Resort was built in the 1980s as the city’s only high-rise casino. Victorian Square hosts many open-air events, including the “Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-off,” while Sparks Marina Park offers sailing, swimming, fishing and other outdoor recreation. Sparks is also home to the Great Basin Brewing Company.
