Gilbert Regional Park - A SPECTACULAR Park in Gilbert 

The spectacular Gilbert Regional Park is the newest park in the friendly town of Gilbert, located just west of Higley Road and south of Queen Creek Road. This all-ages and abilities park has something for everyone and is planned to eventually sprawl across 272 acres and be the town's largest park. Gilbert Parks and Recreation Director Robert Carmona said that "a lot of feedback from the community went into designing the park that Gilbert wanted. It’s exciting to be able to deliver that for the community." 

Phase 1A of the park includes “The Mountain,” a 35-foot-tall climbing & play structure with 7 slides, including a 28-foot slide, and two zip lines. There’s also “The Falls,” a 4,000 Sq.ft. splash pad with more than 50 water features, including two 25-gallon buckets that dump water every 30 seconds or so. Designed for the little ones is “The Creek,” a play area with less intimidating climbing structures and slides. Phase 1A also includes a 200-space parking lot, ramadas and restroom facilities.

Phase 1B is the next phase of Gilbert Regional Park which is currently under construction and expected to open in the summer/fall of this year. Phase 1B will include a 7-acre lake, a performance pavilion/amphitheater, a 10-acre event lawn, 6 tennis courts, 16 pickleball courts, 2 basketball courts, and 6 sand volleyball courts. Gilbert Mayor Jenn Daniels said “the community helped build this park and it is truly designed for every single member of our community. This is just the beginning and I look forward to all of the future development to come.”  

Towards the front of Gilbert Regional Park is where The Strand @ Gilbert, a 25-acre skills-based water park will be built. Plans for The Strand include three lagoons with cable-propelled skiing, wakeboarding, and kneeboarding. John McLaughlin, chief executive officer of Strand Resorts stated that the park would have surfing, an obstacle course, a beach, swimming areas, kayaking and paddleboarding, and a full-service restaurant and bar. Expected to open during the summer of 2021, The Strand will also be offering several educational opportunities to learn about water conservation and water safety.

Future developments also include Ocotillo Bridge. The town is building a new bridge across the Queen Creek Wash and East Maricopa Floodway to connect the east and west portions of Ocotillo Road, which will give visitors and public safety direct access to Gilbert Regional Park. Gilbert is exploring even more opportunities for the park including a hotel, resort, retail, and conference center space.
