We are extremely proud of the efforts of the entire Gilbert team on this honor. The many team members from CIP, Parks & Recreation, Town Manager’s Office, Digital Government along with the project managers did an excellent job in renovating this facility and setting it up for success. The team members at Cactus Yards, together with Craft Culinary Concepts, take tremendous pride in providing exemplary customer service, maintenance and tournament management services to all the entities using Cactus Yards.
