About Gilbert Regional ParkFall Family Nights at Gilbert Regional Park

This park is considered a public park of the town of Gilbert Arizona, but is officially within the city limits of Chandler Arizona at 3005 E. Queen Creek Rd. in Chandler Arizona. It is one of the newest public parks in the area, only about two years old. The park features a fishing pond, splash park, BBQ grills, sand volleyball, basketball courts, tennis, pickle ball, a dirt area where some locals like to race remote control cars, walking paths, huge play structure, shaded seating areas, amphitheater and amazing views of the San Tan Mountains.

Since this park opened, it has been a community staple and favorite. It is a great place to get in some outdoor physical activity and maybe meet some people who live in the area.
