LPR held a ribbon cutting and grand opening for the rejuvenated City Park on Nov. 4. Pictured above is Mayor Lyndell Brenton, Liberty Parks & Rec Foundation Chair, Jodi Capps and Liberty Park Board President Christopher Hand cutting the ribbon on City Park and taking the inaugural slide into the playground.
With the opening of City Park, LPR is nearing the completion of all the Use Tax projects. So far, more than 50 different projects have been completed that scale in size from water fountains to full playground replacements. Check out all the projects by viewing the Use Tax Projects List
This project is made possible thanks to voter approval of a 3/8-cent Use Tax that passed in April 2018. In addition to funding the City Park project, revenue from this tax will provide support for general City operations as well as for some other capital improvements, including improvements to our neighborhood parks and Community Center.
With input from community surveys, City Park task force and Vireo, a landscape architecture, planning, and design firm, the Parks & Rec Board and City Council agreed upon several new amenities, features and renovations to City Park featuring an inclusive playground and a new, themed sprayground.
