Both Las Vegas and Henderson are surprisingly family friendly! The city of Henderson actually has the most parks per capita, but there are quite a number of neighborhoods all over the Valley that have private parks, volley ball courts, tennis courts, sports courts, playgrounds and picnic areas. Some also include private clubhouse, pool and fitness facilities as well.
If you ask people that live here already, you will get a variety of responses about which is the best family oriented community. Personally I chose to live in the Anthem and Green Valley areas of town, while my best friend (much to my dismay since it is across town!) chose Summerlin.

I can pretty much guarantee that once you locate the schools you would prefer your children to attend, that you can find a suitable neighborhood within that school district that will have the types of amenities that you are looking for.
