The Green Valley Library with a playful fountain
in front is in the southeast Las Vegas
Valley. Green Valley is, in fact, a
neighborhood that is mostly located within the
city limits of Henderson.
Green Valley and Henderson
Green Valley, an area in the
Southeast Las Vegas Valley, is governed in part by the
city of Henderson and in part by Clark County. One
of the first suburban communities built away from The Strip,
Green Valley is now a mix of ranch-style homes built in
the '70s and new homes for sale in developments along
tree lined streets.
Luxury Homes in Green
One section of Green Valley is
zoned for horses and includes luxury homes where
homeowners share equestrian facilities. Other
luxury home communities in Green Valley include The
Fountains and the Legacy Golf Course, both gated
Business and shopping
Just off the 95 Freeway south at Sunset Road and
Stephanie, you will find a large shopping complex
including an enclosed shopping mall, The Galleria, with
several major department stores as well as blocks and
blocks of restaurants, shops, casinos and other
businesses, including the largest center of automobile
dealerships in Nevada.
||Large homes in a gated
community in Green Valley Ranch in Henderson,
Nevada. Green Valley Ranch is an especially
beautiful area with many homes sited to take
advantage of the views of the Las Vegas Valley.
Henderson, a separate city from
Las Vegas, is definitely hot. Not only has it
grown fast over the years, it is one of the hottest
areas--temperature-wise-- in the Valley. But
"hot" is always relative in the Valley. In
recent years Henderson has spread out over the desert
hills towards Boulder City as new housing development
follows new housing development.
Henderson West, Silverado, Seven Hills
Especially rapid growth has
taken place in Henderson West -- an area to the south of
the new 215 Freeway-- where you will find upscale
neighborhoods such as Green Valley Ranch, Seven Hills
and the luxurious Anthem Country Club. There are
also many attractive and more modestly priced
developments in this area of western Henderson, one of
the most windy areas of the Valley. The Silverado
Ranch is attractive; Green Valley Ranch is even better.
Henderson is noted for its
official policy of being "child-friendly".
Reflecting this, there are many parks, classes,
concerts, and organized recreational activities for
families and children, including Shakespeare in the
visitors to The District shopping area next to
the Green Valley Ranch casino. Above the street
level shops are condos, so altogether there is a
more urban feel to this neighborhood.
Business and Shopping in
While old downtown
Henderson has a main street lined with old time
neighborhood businesses, much of the commercial and
retail activity is found around The Galleria Mall near
the Sunset Station Casino in Green Valley.
The newest addition to Green
Valley shopping is The District, shown above. It is a
combination of retail stores with condos above. Once a
week Henderson has an open-air Farmers Market.
