Gilbert Recreation Facility Rental Availability


Freestone playgroundFreestone Park was the Town of Gilbert’s first major District Park and began with 65 acres that opened to the public in June 1988. Original amenities were the softball fields, concession building & restrooms, “tot lot” exercise facility for adult fitness, 2 multiuse fields, and amphitheater.

Additional acreage was added over time, leading to the current total of 88 developed acres and 32 undeveloped acres. The original cost of the park was $3.2 million for the land and $3.5 million for the improvements.

Freestone playground2Freestone Park is also host to “The Freestone Railroad which boasts a miniature train, antique carousel, and a mini Ferris wheel plus the Rip City Batting cages which were all added in 1992. Extra amenities added to the park have included volleyball & basketball courts plus a courtside ramada in 1996. Further construction in 2001 included the tennis courts and skate Park. Finally, the Freestone Recreation Center was opened north of the park in December 2002.

Having celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the park in 2013, Freestone underwent some major improvements including new basketball court surfacing, new ballfield lights and a new playground structure with shade. In 2015, a new playground structure was added to the ballfield area with wheelchair accessibility.
