Gypsy Hill Park has been an important part of Staunton's history since the 19th century. The area's initial use was the source of Staunton's water supply via underground springs distributed from the Pump House. The park later was expanded to include a fairgrounds, a horse race track, and a zoo.
The park entrance is adorned with ornamental Victorian era gates and piers designed in the 1890's by the well-known local architect T.J. Collins. This gateway is flanked by the historic Pump House and the Garden Center.
It is time to restore several historic elements and enhance the gateway with some new features and landscaping for the thousands of area residents who continue to use this wonderful community park every year.
