Gilbert Primary Park has some of the oldest play equipment in the parks system, dating back to the late 1960s. Recently, a slide was removed due to lead paint content. A new playground and ADA pathway improvements are coming to Gilbert Primary Park, thanks to funding from the Parks Replacement Bond.
