Beginning in September 2019, Gilbert residents and businesses will enjoy recreational use of the Chandler Heights Basin thanks to an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) between the Flood Control District of Maricopa County and the Town of Gilbert. The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors voted to approve the IGA that allows Gilbert to implement and maintain a multi-use and recreational area within the District’s Chandler Heights Basin, 225 acres located south of Queen Creek Road and west of Higley Road. In addition, Gilbert currently owns approximately 47 acres immediately adjacent to the basin which provides a new, 272-acre regional park site in the South area of Gilbert.
