Park & Picnic Reservations

Picnic areas (with a few exceptions) are available to all citizens on a first-come, first-served basis unless the area has been reserved through our reservation system. Individuals or groups may pay for a rental to reserve a specific picnic area. All reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance of the event. Henderson-based companies and residents may reserve picnic areas up to 180 days prior to the event.

Those who wish to use the park are not required to pay. However, should a party reserve that particular park area, those who have not paid the park rental will have to relocate.

Archery Open Range

Whitney Mesa Recreation Area

The range master facilitates safe archery target shooting through coordinated directions to groups wishing to practice their skills. Bring your own equipment (no broad tip arrows allowed) or rent it from us for $10 per hour or $20 per day.

Each participant or a parent/guardian must register and sign a waiver at Whitney Ranch Recreation Center before they are allowed to shoot. Upon your first visit, you must attend an orientation on range rules and safety. Call 702-267-5707 for more information.
