Fencing is currently being installed along the perimeter of the property restricting access to off-road vehicles, ATVs, motorcycles, etc. Existing trails are open to walking and non-motorized biking access only.
The Wedekind Regional Park site is one of the few open space areas in the city of Sparks boundaries. A Recreation and Public Purposes Act Application with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) was filed in 1993 for a lease on the property. The application was approved in July, granting the city of Sparks a five-year lease.
Plans for the park include natural trails and observation areas positioned to take full advantage of the vista points. A trailhead with restrooms and parking, and a neighborhood park have also been designated for future development of the park.
