Gilbert Park (at the end International Ave) is approximately 13 acres in size, is located between two large natural areas, and contains a 0.51 KM trail. Gilbert Park is identified as a municipal park by the Town of LaSalle and is part of the Greenway and Linkage System.

The Town of LaSalle received a grant from TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (TD FEF) to install the 0.51 KM trail and interpretive signs. There are a total of nine signs along the trail. The signs were created with the intention of being used by the nearby grade schools (LaSalle Public and Sacred Heart) for educational purposes. Everyone is welcome to take a walk and learn about the local wildlife, flora, bird species, the Carolinian Forest, pit and mound, and more.
