Reunion Trails Park Groundbreaking Oct. 18
HENDERSON, Nev.— The City of Henderson is breaking ground on a new neighborhood park and the public is invited to attend. The ceremony takes place at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 18, at the site of the future Reunion Trails Park, located at Casady Hollow Avenue and Drawback Street, just off Paseo Verde Parkway. Mayor Andy Hafen and Councilwoman Debra March will officially break ground and give the order for construction to commence.
The site is located on 17 acres near Stephanie Street and I-215, and is strategically located adjacent to Amargosa Trail and the I-215 Trail, which traverse the City. The park gets its name from this “reunion” of trails. Planned amenities include playgrounds, splash pad, basketball court, open and shaded areas, and trail connectivity.
Funding for the $9.3 million project has been provided by the Bureau of Land Management through the sale of public lands as authorized by the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act (SNPLMA). The City of Henderson has been awarded more than $235 million in SNPLMA funding for more than 30 parks and trails projects, which has helped to keep pace with an increased demand for outdoor recreation opportunities in the community.
