Henderson is located in the foothills south and adjacent to Las Vegas. Incorporated in 1953, Henderson is the second largest city in Nevada, known for its parks, cycling and hiking trails and master-planned communities. Henderson is certified Playful City USA!

Among our favorite parks in the world: Cornerstone, a repurposed quarry, now a multi-purpose marsh. Look for the egrets on the red poles. There are also ducks galore and often seagulls, an odd sight in the Mohave Desert.

To see old Henderson, visit Water Street downtown. We're fans of Chef Flemmings bakery, the Thursday Farmers Market and events at the convention center and the Henderson Events Plaza. Ample free parking!

Project GREEN (Green Valley Ecology, Environment and Nature): Friends of Pittman Wash

Project GREEN (Green Valley Ecology, Environment, and Nature): Friends of Pittman Wash is a 2.5 mile habitat restoration program located between Arroyo Grande Boulevard and Pecos Road along the Pittman Wash, with an entrance directly behind the Silver Springs Recreation Center. The project area is a natural area that carries floodwater from the mountains south of Henderson, to the Las Vegas Wash, and ultimately into Lake Mead. For a trail map, click here.

Ascaya
http://ascaya.com
"Nestled into the desert landscape that defines Nevada’s visage, Ascaya feels as if it were shaped by the elements. It being manmade makes the terrain all the more impressive. Just as this place was derived from rock formations millions of years in the making, the name Ascaya originates from a distant place and time. The ancient Greeks and Romans used an axe-like tool called an ascia to carve stone structures. Its ability to shape natural elements at mankind’s whim inspired a development of monumental proportions. Where stone rises up to meet the sky, there is a place called Ascaya."
