The North Valleys, encompassing Sun Valley, Golden Valley, Lemmon Valley, Stead, Silver Springs, Cold Springs and very far north the Red Rock and Rancho Haven communities, has experienced a huge population growth in the past six years. This area is 20 to 50 minutes north of downtown Reno and had mostly long-term rural homeowners until recently. Most of the growth is contributed to national warehouse distribution centers opening in the North Valleys due to the abundance of land. The relocation of the Amazon warehouse to this area, Urban Outfitters and Petco distribution centers has brought many new homeowners to the North Valleys.
As a result of this population growth, national retail stores, gyms, and restaurants have opened in the North Valleys. However, the area is also still very rural with local farmers and wide open federal and state lands. Many residents own horses, dogs, chickens, and goats and enjoy riding ATVs and other recreational vehicles.
The North Valleys is home to many parks and wildlife refuges. There is the North Valleys Regional Park and Splash Water Park in Stead, the Cold Springs Sierra Rock Park, the Lemmon Valley Horseman’s Arena and Lemmon Valley Park, Silver Knolls Park and Swan Lake Nature Study area - A nationally recognized birdwatching area, the Sierra Safari Zoo, and the Animal Ark wildlife sanctuary. There is also the Red Rock Hounds & Equestrian Center - Red Rock Hounds is devoted to fox hunting as an activity of sportsmanship, hound work, horsemanship, land conservation and wildlife habitat preservation.
