Heritage Park Grand Opening Set for Sept. 22

 

A new park deep in southeast Henderson celebrates its grand opening on September 22.

Mayor Andy Hafen, members of the City Council and the City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department will be at the celebration for Heritage Park, 350 S. Racetrack Road, beginning at 10 a.m.

The park is located on Racetrack Road between Burkholder Boulevard and Newport Drive. In addition to a ribbon cutting, the event will feature activities for children, refreshments, and tours of the park. A previous phase of the park’s 160-acre campus included completion of the LEED Gold-certified Heritage Park Aquatic Complex and Heritage Park Senior Facility, as well as the Bark Park dog park.

Second-phase amenities include:

  • 13 multi-purpose fields to accommodate soccer, football, lacrosse, and rugby
  • Two 90-foot baseball fields plus a warm-up area
  • Shaded picnic areas
  • Amphitheater with shaded stage and gabion wall
  • Natural surface and paved perimeter and arroyo trails
  • Outdoor classrooms along the arroyo trail
  • Open turf areas
  • Concession building
  • Children’s play area
  • Splash pads
  • Doghouse-themed restrooms at the Bark Park

The park’s sustainable elements include a Skystream 3.7 wind turbine as well as solar panels designed to educate the public about alternative energy sources. LED lighting is equipped with sensors for energy efficiency, and sports fields feature Musco lighting with “lids” to alleviate light pollution. The park also uses modern technology in its irrigation system to conserve resources.

Project funding of $20 million was received through money acquired by the federal government in local land sales. For additional information, visit cityofhenderson.com/parks.
