  • We like how big the park is and all the great events they hold here. We recently went to a food truck face off and had a great time trying all the foods for a good cause. It's very convenient to be near the aviary as well if you want to take your kids to do other things.
  • A lot of open space. Many trees with plenty of shaded areas. Several different Play Grounds for kids. A few Picnic areas with cover, barbecue grills, some have a volleyball court or sand court. Public Restrooms. A good amount of parking though it is almost always full. Boat pond. Wading ponds. Swimming pool. Open Basketball courts. Well kept and staffed Aviary. A few amusement rides for kids in summer. Tennis club. Biking and Running and Walking paths.
  • Great place to go in the early part of the day. Amazing park with aviary, pool, water play structures, splash pad, multiple playgrounds, beautiful trees, grass, a lake... Sometimes in the afternoon the kids and people there can be a little rough. Better to take young kids in the morning.
  • Great park although the parking situation is odd. You can't drive around the whole park without getting forced to make a u-turn out on the streets... It's so big too that if you don't know exactly which entrance to use, you'll end up doing this.
  • I love liberty park! From Tracy Aviary to the playgrounds to the duck pond, there is so much to see. It is a really great place to just hang out, have a picnic, walk a dog, or go on a run. The birds are really nice, so they're always happy to eat out of your hand (oats or veggies, not bread please!). Lots and lots of parking as well.
