Blue Diamond park

BLUE DIAMOND (FOX5) -- Sounds of nature and fresh air can both be found in a pit stop on your way to Red Rock Canyon.

A place that takes you back in time, where burros wander the streets and rock climbers sit in the shade of cottonwood trees.

There are only a few hundred Nevadans that call the town of Blue Diamond home, and because of the town's position surrounded by government-owned land, that’s the way it will be for a while.

Once a town for miners and their families, today the quiet town is just two roads close in proximity to the ever-growing Las Vegas metro area.

For those who have found their little slice of paradise here, they are thankful for this diamond in the rough in the Nevada desert.
