BACKGROUND RESOURCES: Regional Parks took over management of Gibson Ranch Regional Park, from GRP 2011, LLC, on Dec. 1.
“When Regional Parks acquired this property in 1962, the goal was to retain the atmosphere of the ranch,” said Liz Bellas, Director of Regional Parks. “We are excited to have community members out to the park to help us with a few projects. This is a great community-building opportunity and a chance to meet some of the Regional Parks staff who are going to be working hard to clean up and maintain this park.”
Gibson Ranch Regional Park is a 355-acre park that has an equestrian center and includes roughly 100 acres of pasture, a multi-use field and five miles of equestrian trails. Within the central core of Gibson Ranch are a Ranch House suitable for weddings and other gatherings; large stable and barn; numerous storage barns; paddocks; corrals; a horse arena and cabins, which can be used as overnight facilities for camp programs or other events. The park also contains group and family picnic facilities, restrooms and a large fishing lake.
