Henderson, Nevada – Among our favorite city parks: Cornerstone, 1600 Wigwam Parkway (in between Arroyo Grande and Stephanie). The park was a former quarry. Today that land has been converted into ample green spaces, trails, marshes and small lake (big pond). Please don’t feed the birds! Tuesday market, 9am-2pm: prevailmarketplacellc.com (Facebook).
