My favorite place to walk my dog when I’m in a pinch. Great little trails with water and always something to see. Lots of wildlife. Bunnies and birds galore. Watch for rattlesnakes. My kids love the play area.

A stroll, different ducks to look at, not beautiful lakes, a nice place to stretch your legs.

This is a hidden gem of the valley. It’s great way to get out of the house for a leisurely and beautiful stroll. There’s so many different animals to admire here, I couldn’t believe that it’s just in the middle of Gilbert. I’m grateful that this area exists and even more so that it’s free!
