A Tale of Two Parks.
Located just north of downtown Liberty, the park is home to our town sports center. Open daily to the public, it features a newly renovated playground for the kids, shade trees and picnic tables for the adults. With several nature trails for your walking pleasure you'll be sure to experience a freedom like no other here. Other amenities include: basketball and tennis courts, horseshoe pits, and baseball and soccer fields.
For special events a indoor/outdoor shelter with bathrooms can be reserved. During certain events a concession stand is open with food and drinks.
Of course my favorite park is the more central Paul Henry Smith Park:
Established in 1971, made possible by a donation from the Liberty Home Demonstration Club in memory of Mayor Paul Henry Smith, former Mayor of Liberty.
Located centrally a few blocks west of downtown Liberty, the functional park also serves as a memorial for the former Mayor it is named for. Open to the public daily, a recently renovated playground, picnic tables, baseball field, and basketball courts make family fun as easy as hop, skip and a jump away.
For special events a covered shelter and tables with restrooms can be reserved.
There is of course the lesser known Depot Park, downtown. At the current moment the park is simply a garden area with a bench, but we long for the day a meandering path allows citizens to traverse the town without having to walk on or next to roads.
