Henderson, NV (KTNV) -- Just in time for summer, a new park has opened in Henderson.

Grand opening celebrations were held on Saturday for Cornerstone Park. It's located on Wigwam near Stephanie.

The 100-acre park has a highlighted lake, plus other activities which sets it apart.

"I think what sets this park apart is it has both a mix of passive and active recreation, meaning there are chances for people to have a picnic, hike and do bird watching, but also more active types of use [such as basketball]," said one park expert.

The park also has a corporate plaza area and catering kitchen that can be rented for special events.
