A mere 15 minutes from the famous Las Vegas Strip is a gem of an area filled with lush green belts and manicured palm trees. It’s like a hidden oasis at the edge of a world-class city.

The Green Valley Master Community development was founded in 1978 by American Nevada Corporation, covering 8,400 acres on the southeast part of the Las Vegas Valley. Green Valley North is a smaller enclave developed later within the master community, along with Green Valley South and Green Valley Ranch.

Green Valley (North, South, and Ranch) postal codes include 89074, 89014, and 89012. Some portions extend into the eastern areas of the 89052 zip code.

Green Valley North has an abundance of restaurants and shopping centers to choose from, with everything from Trader Joe’s to Galaxy Theatres in the neighborhood. Just a few minutes down the road from Green Valley North, Green Valley Ranch is an upscale community with many amenities including shopping, bars, and restaurants. The distinguished outdoor shopping and dining area, The District at Green Valley Ranch, is a favorite destination of locals, located at the corner of Green Valley Pkwy and Highway 215 next to Green Valley Ranch Resort Spa and Casino.

Kitty-corner from The District is the brand-new Henderson Event Center, an enclosed multi-purpose venue with a capacity of 6,000. Once completed, The Henderson Silver Knights AHL hockey team will play their home games here.

Just a short drive to downtown Henderson’s Water Street District, you can visit The Lifeguard Arena, the new official practice facility for both the Silver Knights and the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights. At this facility you can rent skates, participate in Open Skate and Freestyle sessions, attend training camps and clinics, and host corporate events.

Recent development in the area doesn’t end there; in 2019 Google broke ground on one of its data centers just up the road, at the corner of Boulder Hwy and Warm Springs Road — just a 15-minute drive from the heart of Green Valley.

Green Valley North is home to the Wildhorse Golf Club, where Henderson residents can receive a variety of perks, from discounts on individual tee times to frequent player rewards. Elite Golf Card Holders receive preferred rates on rounds at Wildhorse as well as sister golf clubs Aliante, Legacy and Primm Valley. The Country Club at Wildhorse also hosts weddings and special events, with a park-like setting overlooking the beautifully landscaped golf course and a Grand Ballroom that accommodates receptions for up to 200 guests. The clubhouse restaurant is open to all, featuring full breakfast and lunch, happy hour and weekly specials.

A few minutes away in Green Valley South is The Legacy Golf Club, boasting a par 72 championship golf course designed to offer the ultimate experience for golfers of all skill levels. The Grill @ Legacy Golf Club is a full-service casual restaurant, bar and patio, and like the Wildhorse, the venue hosts weddings, parties, meetings and other events for up to 200 guests in a beautiful park-like setting.

In Green Valley North you’ll also find the Ethel M Chocolates Factory, where you can take self-guided factory tours, attend exclusive experiences including premium chocolate and wine tastings, browse the gourmet gift shop and stroll through the breathtaking three-acre Botanical Cactus Garden, which gets decorated with Christmas lights each holiday season. The cactus garden is Nevada’s largest, and one of the world’s most prolific plant collections of its kind. The naturalistic landscape is home to 300 species of plants including drought-tolerant ornamental, cacti, and other succulents native to the American Southwest, as well as desert trees and shrubs from Australia and South America.

This area also includes old-time Vegas rural estates, complete with stables and horseback riding trails. At the corner of Sunset and Pecos you’ll find iconic entertainer Wayne Newton’s luxurious 52-acre estate, Casa De Shenandoah. His home for over four decades is also a museum showcasing the singer’s life and legacy. You’ll enjoy walking the meticulously manicured grounds and exploring the ornate hallways and grand rooms. The priceless memorabilia on display includes items from friends like Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson and Lucille Ball.

Just minutes to the West is Sunset Park, one of the largest parks in the state of Nevada. The enormous 185-acre park is home to volleyball courts, tennis courts, basketball courts, soccer fields and Frisbee golf competitions, as well as impressive walking and biking trails. Picnic tables, barbeques and restrooms make it a perfect place to spend the day with family. The large 14-acre Sunset Park Pond that forms the heart of the park is an unexpected oasis where you can feed the ducks, watch the fountains, dip your feet in the water and feel like you’re in Anytown, USA. If you prefer fishing, you’ll find rainbow trout and channel catfish stocked seasonally. Natural species include bluegill, redear sunfish, black crappie, and largemouth bass.

At the East end of Green Valley is the 56-acre Arroyo Grande Sports Complex. This modern facility features a sports park, lighted ball fields and basketball courts, disc golf, bicycle terrain amenities, dog park with agility run, horseshoe pits, open turf area, playground, covered picnic shelters and restrooms.

Just South of this complex, and connected by a walking trail, is Cornerstone Park. The 100-acre piece of natural wonder surrounds a 31-acre lake that forms a natural habitat for ducks and geese. The park features lighted basketball and volleyball courts, exercise stairs, open grass area, a corporate plaza area, large pavilions, warming kitchen, covered picnic areas, separate picnic tables and restrooms.

Smaller neighborhood parks in the area include Fox Ridge Park, Silver Springs Park, and Pecos Legacy Park.

Henderson is known for its extensive 180+ mile trail system, providing opportunity for recreation and alternate transportation. The pride and joy of this trail system is the 8.2-mile Pittman Wash Trail, located in Green Valley. This paved trailway is suitable for walking, running and bicycling, and spans all the way from Eastern and 215 to Arroyo Grande Sports Complex and Cornerstone Park.

The Whitney Mesa Trail Sunset Entrance, located on West Sunset Road, provides access to the breathtaking Whitney Mesa Park and Recreation Area with unprecedented views of the city. This 20-acre gem features red mesas, like a mini Arizona desertscape, as well as a walking course, lighted basketball and tennis courts, archery, day camp, barbeques, covered picnic shelters, open grass areas, historic native-themed structures and playground.
