Grand Opening Celebration For Hidden Falls Park Jan. 7
HENDERSON, Nev.— The City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department is hosting a grand opening celebration for Hidden Falls Park, 281 W. Horizon Dr., at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 7. Mayor Andy Hafen and members of the Henderson City Council will join neighbors in celebrating the park’s official opening. The public is invited to attend.
Hidden Falls Park is located on a 60-acre site, 18 acres of which has been developed with neighborhood and community park amenities including a playground, splash pad, dog park, skate park, basketball court, shaded picnic ramadas, restrooms, and a trailhead. Funding of $8.5 million was provided by the Bureau of Land Management through the sale of public lands as authorized by the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act (SNPLMA).
“Hidden Falls Park is nestled against the mountains, and it was designed to blend harmoniously with the natural, rugged look of the area,” said Shari Ferguson, assistant director, City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department. “Residents will especially enjoy the trails and scenic overlooks, which provide a quiet opportunity to reconnect with nature.”
Future phases of development may include tennis courts and a 250-seat natural amphitheater. For additional information, call 267-4000 or visit cityofhenderson.com/parks.
