Water Tower Plaza in Gilbert Arizona is home of the majestic Gilbert water tower that overlooks the downtown Heritage District in Gilbert Arizona. The water tower was originally built in 1927 and supplied water to firetrucks until 1985 when it was preserved by the Gilbert Town Council. Along with the tower is the old adobe pump house that was originally Gilbert's first jail.
In 2008 Water Tower Plaza opened with more features including a 19,000 pound granite ball atop a granite pedestal floating on a layer of water.
An interactive fountain children love to run through on warm days as the water intermittently cascades, showcases with pictures depicting the history of Gilbert and park benches to sit and enjoy it all give the park a hometown feeling.
