“Lovely park”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Gypsy Hill Park is a small delight in Staunton. It was decorated for Christmas. Local businesses sponsored the displays. In warmer weather this is a lovely place to walk.It was so warm on Christmas Eve that the park was full of folks walking through the park alone or with their dogs.In Summer there are outdoor movies and concerts at the Bandstand. The local farm league baseball teams are a wonderful asset to Staunton.

“We love Gypsy Hill Park”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Gypsy Hill Park is located on the west side of downtown. It has a 1.3 mile loop that is perfect for running, walking and biking. The park has two playground areas, one near the main entrance that is divided for toddlers and older children and one near the exit that is for smaller children. There are three ball fields located in the park and they are used heavily during spring and summer with baseball teams from the area. There is a duck pond with duck food dispensers (5 cents), a bandstand that offers free musical events M - Th during the summer months and The Gypsy Hill Express, offering rides for $1 pp between April and October weekends. From Thanksgiving to New Year's, there are great Christmas light displays offered around the loop. Local churches and business set up light displays advertising church services and businesses. It is a nice place and suitable for exercise and leisure.

“Nice Christmas light display”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Went to see the Christmas light display. Was much enjoyable. My husband and I walked it to get the full effect of the display. Would like to go back in the summer and enjoy the out door activities they had there.

“Celebration of Lights”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

What a beautiful sight, the community sponsored light show. Families sponsor displays, local business and churches also. The field of deer is a very touching remembrance of those who have left us. A lovely ride on a chilly holiday evening.
