Nevada 564 follows Lake Mead Parkway 8.22 miles east from the exchange joining Interstates 215 and 515 in Henderson to the boundary of Lake Mead National Recreation Area. The majority of Lake Mead Parkway within Henderson constitutes a heavily developed multi-lane arterial. Service roads accompany a portion of the route northeast from Nevada 582 (Boulder Highway) as well.
Lake Mead Parkway within the recreation area is unnumbered and maintained by the National Park Service. A fee station lies just beyond the maintenance change located after Lorin L. Williams Parkway.
Prior to the completion of Interstate 215 between Nevada 146 (St. Rose Parkway) and I-515 & U.S. 93-95 (Oran K. Gragson Freeway), Nevada 146 extended east along Lake Mead Parkway, and over what is now Nevada 564, to Henderson and the National Recreation Area. Nevada 146 historically ended at Nevada 582 (Boulder Highway), with Lake Mead Parkway northeast from there designated as Nevada 147.

|Continuing southwest through the Henderson city limits, a series of power transmission lines cross over Nevada 564. The tallest towers are also the newest; erected as part of Nevada Power's Centennial project. The project resulted in the construction of several new transmission corridors, including this new 500kV line from the Lake Mead substation north to the Harry Allen substation near the I-15 and U.S. 93 interchange northeast of Las Vegas. These towers have the capacity to be expanded to a double circuit 500kV system if needed. Companion towers support a 500kV power line that follows the third line, which is Path 27 (a 500kV Intermountain High Voltage Direct Current [HVDC] transmission line from Delta, Utah, to Adelanto, California).
