The largest and most central property of the city's public park system, this 80 acre Liberty Park offers recreational activities for all. Children applaud the Children's Garden and boating pond, playground, amusement park and snack bar. Older visitors enjoy the swimming pool and the tennis park's 16 lighted courts. Recent developments have added a well-conceived interactive map that uses pools and fountains to depict the topography of Utah. Liberty Park is also home to the ever-popular Tracy Aviary , the Chase Mill and the Chase Home Museum of Folk Art .
I go to parks every day with my two boys, but this one is by far my favorite. The main kids park has a place for smaller children, and a bigger playground for older kids. There are water fountains that are great to play in during the summer, and lots of shade. In the summer time its best to go early in the morning so you can have the park to yourself.
My favorite moments in Liberty Park have been early winter mornings. No one is around, it's just you wandering through the trees.
Conveniently on the corner of 500 East and 900 South is a local coffee stop. Genuine hospitality, wi fi, and newspapers.
I discovered the Coppers hawks this summer. And I met two devoted men that have been watching the same pair nesting every spring, for at least ten years, in LIberty Park.
There's a growing network of merchants in my LIberty Park locale. It's not 9&9th- not quite that gentrified. Good foodie spots, though. Besides coffee, two Thai restaurants, an awesome pan-asian grocery store, a UK specialty foods spot, a vegan bakery, a Vietnamese bakery, and pretty close to the State Street taco carts. Oh, also a chocolate and candies outfit.
I try not to overuse the sidewalks and paths in LIberty Park. I go overland through the 80+ acres. In the hottest days of summer escape the sun by climbing tree shadows.
Liberty Park is one of the best parks in the city. I go there at least three times a week to run around the jogging path, or bike along the bike path. Its huge and great for picnics and bbqs. On Sundays during the summer, they have Drum Circle, where a bunch of awesome hippies and other enthusiasts play their drums and other instruments and everyone just dances and picnics and gathers to talk to a whole different group of people than you're used to. There are a bunch of things for kids to do, including feeding ducks by the huge pond, or playing in the kiddie fountain near the middle of the park. There's the Tracy Aviary, which, while being sorely under-funded, is still pretty cool to roam around and check out the birds. There's tennis and a pool and a playground. Its great that there's so much to do, and so centrally located, too. There's not a lot of homeless people, either, which is nice, compared to some of the other parks in Salt Lake. Overall, it's a great place to exercise, take a date or the family on a picnic, or just go to relax and people watch. Plus! One of the best things about it is that everything you can do there is either free or pretty cheap! I don't have kids, but if I did, I'd definitely take them there to socialize with other kids, and just have a great time in the outdoors without having to go very far or spend a bunch of money. Liberty Park is one of the first parks I visited when I moved here, and will always be one of my faves.
I loved the lush setting, the beautiful lake full of water fowl, the bicycle trail, and the little amuzement park rides were so much fun with my grand-daughters. We pigged out on some tasty chicken tenders, corn dogs, nachos, and cotton candy at the outdoor concession. Also my grand-daughters fav...the swimming hole, with many happy, water slapping kids...It was great fun...and I will return.
