Liberty Green Park

Liberty Green is a new neighborhood park developed on 3.25 acres of underutilized land at the intersection of the Larimer and East Liberty neighborhoods.

Liberty Green Park

Larimer and East Liberty

100 Block Larimer Avenue
The Larimer community has long advocated for a system of recreation and open spaces around which it could rebuild the neighborhood with a new green identity, sustainable development principles and new recreation investments for current and future families.


Located at the intersection of the Choice Neighborhoods Initiative’s Larimer and East Liberty neighborhoods, the park will be bounded by new mixed-income housing, and feature plaza and assembly space, open lawn and play mounds, and an extensive play area. Playground equipment will be challenging and accessible to increase motor skills and creative play.

There will also be significant green infrastructure that captures and manages stormwater from the park/adjacent streets, and culminates in a community-driven art exhibit that showcases innovative solutions for stormwater management while capturing the community’s history through a design that sets an example for water stories of the future.
