Reserve a Park

The picnic areas (with a few exceptions) are available to all citizens on a first-come, first-served basis unless the area has been reserved through our reservation system. Individuals or groups may pay for a rental to reserve a specific picnic area. All reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance of the event. Henderson-based companies and residents may reserve picnic areas up to 180 days prior to the event. Those who wish to use the park are not required to pay. However, should a party reserve that particular park area, those who have not paid the park rental will have to relocate.

Use of all City of Henderson parks and trails is subject to HMC 2.27.030.
