** Sorry this is the best photos I could find **
 
 
The Parks and Rec board along with Gilbert Town Council are planning to build a massive park in SE Gilbert
area called Chandler Heights Basin.  This park is 272 acres which is the size of 4 of our parks combined ( Discovery,
Crossroads, Freestone and McQueen). 

Phase one is the conceptual design aspect which the Town Council approved (except for Jared Taylor and Victor Petersen) at the cost of $732,000.  They are unable to give us the total cost of the project from start to finish.
 
The cost of the entire project will be given to taxpayers after phase 1 is completed.
 
I asked Mayor Lewis if the size of the park could be scaled down and he said YES.
 
Maintenance costs are unknown.  

PLEASE PASS THIS INFORMATION TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW WHO LIVES IN GILBERT.

YOU THE TAXPAYER WILL BE FUNDING THIS MASSIVE PARK

We want your input on the design of 
Gilbert's New Regional Park!

 

Gilbert is planning for a new regional park and wants your input on the design! Residents are invited to participate and share ideas at three upcoming workshops to assist in developing the vision for the new regional park.

Gilbert Parks and Recreation is currently in the concept design phase for the proposed park located in south Gilbert. To get community input, a series of workshops will be held. The first workshop will be in January with two additional workshops taking place in February and March. Each workshop will have three session options, allowing residents to find the best time and location that works for them.
