Freestone Park Improvements

Town of Gilbert | Gilbert, Arizona

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Freestone Park is one of Gilbert’s premiere parks and is a beloved iconic landmark for the Town, surrounding communities and visitors alike. EPS Group provided landscape architectural services to enhance its central main playground area adjacent to the lake and children’s railroad that circles the park. Our playground improvements included colorful, hip, and fun playground equipment with a focal shade structure with brightly colored tension sails that is on the same axis as a newly developed belvedere for children to overlook the passing train. Other added features increase the footprint of the play area, new decorative paving, sidewalks, retaining walls, fencing, poured-in-place, and wood fiber play surfacing, shade trees, landscape benches and seating areas, colorful landscaping, and upgraded irrigation. The overall playground improvements add a whole different dimension to this favorite Gilbert Park for many years to come.
