LAS VEGAS – This summer, visitors to some public parks in Henderson may notice fenced-off grass areas. However, this initiative is not to deter parkgoers but to promote water conservation.
City crews are actively removing turf and replacing it with Bermudagrass as part of a concerted effort to preserve our precious water supply.
One concerned resident, Kelly Price, expressed disappointment upon discovering the fenced-off field area at Paseo Vista Park. She shared her expectations of spending the entire summer enjoying the park with her daughter, only to find it temporarily inaccessible.
The City of Henderson is undertaking this project at 12 parks, temporarily closing large sections as crews work diligently to install Bermudagrass. The grass field at Paseo Vista Park, for instance, will remain closed until August 10th.
Preston Goodman, a representative from the City of Henderson, highlighted the water-saving benefits of this transition. For every square foot converted from traditional turf to Bermudagrass, the city is projected to save 22 gallons of water per year.
Water scarcity is a growing concern, and proactive measures like these demonstrate the city’s commitment to sustainable practices. By embracing Bermudagrass, Henderson aims to conserve water resources without compromising the beauty and functionality of its public parks.
Residents are encouraged to support and appreciate this initiative, as it contributes to the overall well-being of the community and helps ensure a greener future.
