Liberty Park Playground: GO Bond Project

About the Project

Rotary Play Park is Liberty Park’s Playground located in Salt Lake City’s Liberty Wells District. Reimagining Liberty Park’s Rotary Play Park will utilize a portion of the Reimagine Neighborhood Parks General Obligation bond funding (approved in November 2022) to conduct engagement around the community vision and desired usage. The goal of community engagement for this project is to revitalize the playground in a manner that sizably increases demand and park utilization. Upon completion of public engagement, the City will go through a detailed design process and implement the established vision for the playground. The completed project will feature new and improved amenities that are prioritized by residents and celebrate the community this park serves.
