Gibson Ranch To Partially Close Beginning Oct. 5

Due to County budget reductions, Gibson Ranch County Park will be closed to the public
on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays beginning Oct. 5 until further notice.

Gibson Ranch County Park will be open from Thursday to Sunday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and operating hours may vary during the winter
and spring season.

“Reductions to both our department budget and our staff at Gibson Ranch County Park have made these partial closures an unfortunate necessity,” said Regional Parks Director Janet Baker. “We will continue to stay open during the park’s busiest days and we will try to work with the community to make these reductions as painless as possible.”

The park will remain open during the weekends to maximize revenues and accommodate picnic reservations and visitors to the equestrian center. Mondays through Wednesdays were selected for closure because they are the slowest days of the week.

Gibson Ranch County Park is located near the Dry Creek Parkway in the communities of Elverta and Rio Linda. At over 345 acres, Gibson Ranch County Park offers a variety of activities for visitors, including an equestrian center, fishing, two playground areas and a number of picnic reservation sites.


  1. Thank you BUZZ for posting this. Gibson ranch is a wonderful place that many Natomas residents don’t know is actually quite close to us. It is a great place to expose your kids to nature and animals without having to go far. This summer they showed free movies on Fridays, I hope they bring that back.
    Please get your family out to the park and show the county how much our children need places like Gibson ranch.
