I'm really proud of this park. They have two playgrounds, a pool, tennis courts, and baseball fields. They also have a golf course, areas for local festivals, and picnic pavilions. There is a pond full of golden carp, ducks, geese, and swans. It's a very pleasant place to go. On the weekends during warm weather, there is a small train... More

It was an overcast day and we had rain in the morning. Did not go far but it brightened up in the afternoon, so we thought we would find somewhere to read our books for an hour. The park is large with plenty of car parking in the park. There is a lake with ducks and swans, slides for the... More

Ok if you want to take a run or show the kids some carp and birds. Better as a venue for a concert if you are lucky.

We had many opportunities to explore this great park and truly enjoyed it. On our last hike, though, there was a guy teaching his pitbull to do rather "odd" tricks. It creeped me out. On the other hand, the pool looked beautiful (we never tried it), the baseball fields are gorgeous, and the train that runs on the weekends looked... More

I am so glad that someone mentioned coming to Gypsy Hill Park. I loved the duck/swan pond. The park is very well maintained and has several options of activities for people to do. There are pools, ball fields, picnic areas, and more. I can't wait to bring my kids back!

We spent a couple hours here resting and reading our books. The park is expansive and included playing fields and a golf course but we enjoyed the duck pond and the shady area nearby which was perfect for sitting and cooling our heels. Well worth a stop!

This is one of my all time favorite small town parks. BEAUTIFUL duck/swan pond, small train for children and adults, pools, ball fields, picnic areas, pavilion, tennis courts and gazebo for outdoor music all surrounded by mature trees. I'm telling you it is such a lovely park.........go see for yourself. I love It!!!

I jogged around the entire park and could not believe the picnic areas, the pool, baseball fields, and the special pond for the ducks and geese. A wonderful place to walk around and just relax under the fresh grass and trees and a golf course! You should check it out!

We were visiting Staunton over the 4th weekend and found out this is where they have the fireworks display. We went over around 9 PM and listened to the live music for about an hour. They had a nice carnival like festival going on in the park. Everyone seemed to get along and we never felt out of place there.... More
