Henderson also has some renovations of their own at their city parks. 

Haley Hendricks and Saguaro Parks are getting two Sway playground pieces which will be completed in a couple of weeks. A Sway playground piece is basically an all-inclusive piece of equipment for both children with or without disabilities. The equipment was donated.

Henderson is also adding access from the neighborhoods surrounding Whitney Mesa Neighborhood park as well as adding a new swing set.

Reunion Trails, Hayley Hendricks, Potenza, Morrell, and the Black Mountain Recreation Center are all adding shelter over their playgrounds for shade.

The city is repairing and/or replacing the playground surfacing at Rodeo, Stephanie Lynn Craig, Horizon Crest, Morrell, Saguaro, Green Valley, and Amador Vista.

Hard court surfacing is going to be repaired and resurfaced on the tennis court, basketball court, and shuffleboard court at Paseo Verde Park.

Lastly, the city of Henderson will be adding additional access trail areas to the homes on the west side of Whitney Mesa Park. Whitney Mesa Park will also be adding a new swing set area.
