Farmer’s Markets, biking trails, outdoor events at the amphitheater, these are all things you can expect from living in Green Valley Ranch. The Henderson Multigenerational Community Center and Green Valley Ranch Resort and Casino are at the heart of this community.
This is one of my favorite areas of Henderson. This area was developed mostly in the late 1990s to early 2000s. You’ll find many gated communities and some with a community pool. The public schools in this area draw many families to buy and to rent here. Within minutes of your home, you’ll have an array of great restaurants, shops, and conveniences. The Henderson Multigen boasts water slides for the kids in the summer, indoor and outdoor swimming for adults, an indoor running track, basketball courts, gym, ping pong, pool and many classes that will enrich you and your family’s life.
During the week, you’ll see many of the professionals around Green Valley meeting up for lunch or happy hour at The District. There are some incredibly good restaurants like Settebello, Hank’s Fine Steaks, and Lyfe Kitchen.
The McCullough Hills Trail is nearby with some of the best mountain biking available in the valley. There are many parks and grassy areas that have you forgetting you’re in the desert. Discovery Park is a great place for families to play, picnic, and play volleyball, tennis or basketball. There’s a bike path that connects this park to St. Rose Parkway and beyond. It’s called the Paseo Verde Trail.
One of my favorite things to do is exploring new dog parks with our dog, Shadow. Though not in Green Valley Ranch, the Heritage Bark Park is just a 15-minute drive. Your furry friend can run through the sprinklers, play in large grassy fields or run the agility course. Locally, there are smaller parks in Green Valley Ranch. Amador Vista provides views of the Las Vegas Strip at night. The park is well lit and there are lots of doggie friends after 6pm that want to play. Paseo Vista Park is a small dog park but a giant kid park with playgrounds and splash pads the kids can enjoy in the summer. Cactus Wren is tucked away at the end of a residential street but there are two big fenced-in areas for the dogs to go off-leash.
