Gibby’s Field protected, will become a new naturally managed park
Good news! This past Monday, the Park Board approved a plan to create a new ‘naturally managed park’ at E 18th and Victoria Drive, in a location known as “Gibby’s Field.” The site contains the last part of Gibson Creek, and is “likely the site where two tributaries of China Creek once met.” The preservation of the site follows a long-standing community effort to preserve the site, dating back to 2001.
