Description

Liberty Park, located between 9th and 13th South and 5th and 7th East in Salt Lake City, is the oldest and most prominent park in Utah. Since its beginning in 1882, Liberty Park has been a favorite open space retreat for thousands of people who have enjoyed its beautiful trees, shrubs and clean mountain air. Liberty is a place to connect with nature, a place to enjoy friendships and family relationships and a place to escape the daily cares of life. Throughout the years people have enjoyed the grass and cool shade trees for lawn games and barbequing. Sports such as jogging, bicycling, swimming, tennis, rowing, horseshoes and volleyball, have always been an important part of Liberty Park. Whether it is participating in a family reunion, or enjoying the Park in solace with one’s thoughts, Liberty Park has been a favorite spot for thousands throughout its existence. As its name implies, Liberty Park is a place where all people are invited to enjoy the freedom and beauty of nature in a historical and grand setting.
