The Henderson community is preparing for another eventful summer season. With seven recreation centers, 11 aquatic facilities, 56 parks, over 80 miles of trails and hundreds of programs and events, there is an abundance of opportunity to keep your family active this summer. It’s also a great time to take advantage of our complimentary services to host a block party or neighborhood cleanup. Building relationships with your neighbors can help keep your neighborhood clean and safe and by working together Henderson can remain a premier community for generations to come. Learn more about all our programs and services at or pick up a copy of the summer Henderson Happenings at any of our recreation centers.

Sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists, National Bike Month celebrates cycling for fun, fitness or transportation. The City of Henderson's extensive 80-mile trail system provides the perfect opportunity to bike to school and work or safely explore the great outdoors. Kicking off in May, our first citywide bicycling scavenger hunt turns Henderson's award-winning trails into a mystery board game on wheels. Henderson is hosting a variety of other cycling activities throughout the month of May for all ages and abilities. More information is available at

The City of Henderson is also proud to introduce a complimentary Bike Valet service at all major city of Henderson-hosted and sponsored events. Simply bring us your bike and we'll give you a numbered claim ticket as your receipt. Our staff monitors and supervises the valet area throughout the event so your bike is always safe and in good hands. When you're ready to leave, just present the claim ticket at the Bike Valet and you'll be on your way.
