Park to open; water to splash

The public is invited today from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., to celebrate the official grand opening of the 19-acre Madeira Canyon Park. Pulte Homes and the communities of Del Webb, along with the city of Henderson, are hosting the event, located within the 487-acre Madeira Canyon master-planned community.

The free event will provide entertainment, free snacks, refreshments, DJ, a wide variety of children’s activities, (including a water play facility) and free giveaways (while supplies last). The event will kick-off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, followed by comments from city of Henderson dignitaries, along with representatives of Pulte Homes, Del Webb and the city of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department.

“This is going to be a very special occasion for our current and future homeowners,” said Walter Cuculic, director of marketing for the Las Vegas Division of Pulte Homes. “First, it will open a new world of opportunities for fun and recreation for Pulte and Del Webb homeowners already living in the Madeira Canyon master plan, and secondly, it will offer an opportunity for homebuyers — from singles, to couples to large families — to experience an amazing collection of floor plan designs as well as experience one of the best, if not the best, regional park in the city. At this time when amenities in the majority of master-planned communities in Las Vegas are yet to be completed it is exciting to see a developer like Pulte to complete a magnificent park like this.”

Designed by Anderson Baron Landscape Architects of Phoenix, the Madeira Canyon Park features a variety of facilities — which will be lighted during evenings — including two ball fields, two soccer fields, four horseshoe pits, two full-sized basketball courts, security-fenced tot lot designed for children 5 and younger, playground for small children, multi-purpose open turf area and a trail system that links the various park amenities. Another attraction is a specially designed water play area that features splash pads, water rainbows, water trees, water cannons and waterfalls.

“Perhaps one of the most amazing features of this park is the phenomenal, panoramic (views of) vistas it offers of the entire Las Vegas Valley,” Cuculic said. “The view spans from the southernmost end of the Las Vegas Strip, north through the downtown area and beyond. It is something you must experience personally, to truly appreciate — especially the view of the city lights after dusk.

The park is located between two neighborhoods — The Club at Madeira Canyon and the Paseo at Madeira Canyon — that are being constructed by Pulte Homes and Del Webb.

The Club at Madeira Canyon is a guard-gated enclave that offers a choice of 10 floor plans that range from 2,587 to 4,817 square feet and are priced from the $460,000s.

The Paseo at Madeira Canyon features a total of 13 one- and two-story models, representing four collections of homes ranging from 1,580 to 2,804 square feet and priced from the low $200,000s. In their basic configurations, the homes offer two to four bedrooms, two to 31/2 baths and a two- or three-car garages. Options are available to expand each floor plan, adding bedrooms, baths and casitas, or converting others to different uses.

The grand opening celebration will be sponsored in cooperation with the city of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department.

To reach the event take the southern portion of Interstate 215, the Las Vegas Beltway, to Eastern Avenue and go south, past St. Rose Parkway, to Anthem Parkway, then turn left. Continue on Anthem about six miles, then make a left onto Bicentennial Parkway, a left onto Anthem Highlands Drive, and a left onto Democracy, then follow the signs to the model park.
