Formerly known as George’s Pond, this property was purchased in 1934 by Murray Gibson and transformed into a popular recreational area. In addition to the diving platform pictured above, Gibson also added a pavilion, picnic tables, and rental cabins.

The park closed in 1972, but was reopened to the public in 2007 with several major additions including the Scenic Overlook, which provides a unique view of a waterfall rushing over an old gristmill.

Are there alligators in this pond? I have seen the signs that state ‘no swimming’ and have become concerned for my pups.

Where online can I find the 1957 photos of the dance pavilion?

As a child I swam at Gibson Pond at least twice weekly. Lots of fun. I am 60 now and back then they even had swing sets that were set into the pond.
