A developed park (8.28 hectares) containing a wooded Par 3 golf course, tennis courts, playing fields for soccer and baseball, and a jogging trail with an outdoor fitness circuit and playground, and a recreation centre (Henderson Centre).
This multi-faceted park is enjoyed by all ages for a wide range of sports and leisure opportunities. The well-maintained playing fields and tennis courts provide a sports focus for soccer, baseball, and tennis. The beautiful Par 3 golf course provides play in a wooded, secluded setting surrounded by floral displays and a jogging trail with an outdoor fitness circuit.
The Henderson Centre provides administrative services and washrooms as well as a variety of recreational opportunities for adults and children with its spacious gymnasium, a fitness centre and a children’s activity room.
Both inside and outside facilities are well maintained to provide a safe, welcoming environment for visitors.
Organized field use is by permit system. Casual, non-organized use is allowed during times that the fields are not used by permit holders or closed for maintenance. The sand-based grass field is closed to use from mid-March to end of August to allow the turf to regenerate.
The golf course is open seasonally (March through late November) and green fees are charged. Players are expected to adhere to posted rules of play and golf etiquette.
Tennis courts are on a paid reservation system from April through September. Free walk-on use is permitted if the courts are not otherwise booked. (Refer to the current recreation programs brochure for court reservation information.)
For information regarding Henderson Centre programs and usage, refer to the current recreation program brochure.
The parking lot at Henderson Park is for park and recreation facility users only and there is a three-hour limit.
With the exception of assistance dogs, dogs are not allowed on the golf course, jogging (chip) trail, or inside the Recreation Centre. Dogs are allowed in other areas of the park but must be leashed at all times.
With the exception of personal assistance devices, wheeled apparatuses are not allowed in the park except on the roadway or in the parking lot.
