There were no cars allowed on April 12 in downtown Henderson. Instead, thousands of residents took to the streets on foot and on wheels for Henderson’s Stroll ‘N Roll, the city’s own version of Ciclovia, which means “bike path” in Spanish. Originally founded in Bogota, Colombia, Ciclovia is when streets are closed to motorized traffic, allowing the community to gather and enjoy thoroughfares. In 2013, more than 5,000 people attended.
In Henderson, Paseo Verde Parkway, from the Henderson Multigenerational Center at Green Valley Parkway to Discovery Park and on to Paseo Verde Park — essentially, all the major Henderson parks — were designated as closed to motor vehicle traffic, allowing bike, skateboard, skates, buggies and foot traffic the right of way.
Henderson Stroll ‘N Roll welcomed all ages from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. with music, live performances, and health and fitness interactive demonstrations. Learn more about the fun here.
Also on April 12, Inspirada challenged its residents to find out how many ways they can have fun with eggs at its annual Egg-venture celebration. The two-hour, resident-only adventure began at 9:30 a.m. at Solista Park, another of Henderson parks, and featured an egg hunt, egg races, pictures with the egg-toting bunny and 3,000 toy-filled eggs.
Inspirada residents were invited to Egg-venture for the crafts, DJ, face painter, balloon artist and chocolate bunnies. Two great ways to celebrate spring for our special Inspirada residents!
