With their close proximity to Edmonton, residents of Gibbons are never more than half an hour from an Oilers game, the Royal Alberta Museum, the downtown Arts District, or a countless number of historic sites, eateries, and nightlife venues.
But that doesn’t mean you have to cross into “Festival City” to have fun. Gibbons is home to many family-oriented amenities, including 10 parks, 7 playgrounds, a curling rink, ice arena, and numerous sports fields. Just 2 miles north of the border, meanwhile, you’ll find the world-renowned Goose Hummock Golf Resort. Other facilities in Gibbons include the Echo Glen Fish Pond, a skateboard park, spray park, and the multipurpose Jack Hogg Sports Grounds. A must-see for kids and adults of all ages, Jurassic Forest is a startlingly realistic, 40-acre prehistoric preserve situated a few minutes to the north.
With a small town vibe and big city amenities, Gibbons is a town that offers its residents the best of both worlds.
