Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

A booming southeastern suburb of Phoenix, Gilbert was home to only a few thousand residents in the 1980s but now boasts a population of over 250,000. This rural Arizona town once nicknamed “The Hay Shipping Capital of the World” consistently ranks as one of the best places in the U.S. for families to call home, thanks to its housing availability, top-rated schools, access to nature, thriving downtown area, and overall safety.

Downtown Gilbert, also called the Heritage District, continues to entice more and more visitors each year with a wide range of restaurants — everything from pizza to BBQ to Mexican, plus sports bars, a speakeasy, an ice cream parlor, and a historic grocery store reimagined as a cafe — along with art galleries, antique stores, and gift shops. The Hale Centre Theatre hosts live productions throughout the year and remains popular for audience members of all ages. In the heart of the Heritage District is Water Tower Plaza, a public greenspace with a splash park for kids that’s conveniently located across the street from the weekly Gilbert Farmers Market.

As Gilbert developed over the past few decades, the city stayed current and added plenty of attractions for its new citizens — always keeping in mind the gorgeous scenery, low humidity, and year-round warm temperatures of southern Arizona. The SanTan Village outdoor mall opened in 2007 and continues expanding with dining spots, big-box stores, apartments, hotels, and a multiscreen movie theater. Freestone Park comprises 88 acres and features fishing lakes, playgrounds, tennis courts, softball fields, a recreation center, an amphitheater, and a small amusement park with train rides and a carousel. Of course, tee times are in high demand throughout the Phoenix area, and one of Gilbert’s sporting and social hubs is Western Skies Golf Club, a public course with piñon-lined fairways and ideal mountain views.
