Hayley Hendricks Park is a 10-acre plot of land containing a vast array of recreational services and amenities. The park was initially built in 1974 through a grant from the Henderson Rotary Club. Originally a 4-acre sports park, the city decided to add an additional 6 acres after the local foundry closed down and the land was donated in the late 80s, after which they completely refurbished the area.
A fully lit skate park was installed in 2013 and has been attracting large crowds throughout the summer months since its initial inception. Covered picnic shelters are located along the western edge of the park, and come complete with grilling stations. Several public restrooms are posted throughout the park, all of which have permanent water stations for you and your dog.
The 3 different walking trails provide vantage points from which you can see several notable local landmarks. There are 2 half acre areas designated for camping year-round, weather providing. If you're interested in overnight stays, permits can be bought through the Nevada Parks website.
In addition to the standard park amenities offered by Hayley Hendricks, there are also several summer-specific activities to enjoy. Contained within is a splash pad, available for both you and your dog. These pads are always a great way to beat the heat, and are a lot of fun for you and your canine to splash around in during the summer months.
Park authorities warn on the website that temperatures can often get quite high during the summer months, so it's always wise to keep you and your dog well hydrated while enjoying this lush desert oasis. While the park itself is staffed during the summertime, staffing is volunteer-based so hours are available by request from week-to-week. Park rental information is available at the Nevada Parks Office.
Parking is always first-come, first-serve, free of charge.
