Breaking Free at Freestone Park in Gilbert, AZ: Part One

The town of Gilbert, Arizona has much to offer families and vacationers in the way of fun and recreation, especially with the incredible weather we have been having this winter. But of all the places to go and see in Gilbert, none provides quite the variety of interesting experience that can be found in the town's preeminent family destination, Freestone Park in Gilbert, AZ

This 65-plus acre oasis is a favorite destination for pleasure seekers of all ages, as just about anything that anyone might want to do in the great outdoors could be done, has been done, or is being done within the borders of this wonderful recreational retreat.

The Freestone Railroad

Freestone Park's centerpieceBreaking Free at Freestone Park in Gilbert, AZ: Part One is its replica 1880s style mini-train, which stands ready from September through May to carry children and other young-at-heart railroad enthusiasts on a three-quarters of a mile ride that circles Freestone Park at a fun, leisurely pace. While the Freestone Railroad is enough in itself to bring people back to the park again and again, the great news for young fun lovers is that the mini-train is only one part of a bigger carnival-style entertainment complex. In addition to the chance to relive the days of the transcontinental railroad, Freestone Park also has its own little amusement park that includes a dry land Wave Runner perfect for catching a few “desert waves”; an old-fashioned carousel with beautifully crafted wooden horses that will bring back memories of childhood for parents and grandparents alike; and a mini-ferris wheel that brings another traditional pleasure into the modern era.

I like this idea of a mini-amusement park. This must be a great draw to Gilbert for families. I was in Gilbert back in 2006. I visited a church there but can't remember the name but I do remember it was an awesome church.
