Invest in your your park by joining the Weeders Club! Liberty Lands is owned by the our neighborhood, not the city. So it’s up to neighborhood volunteers to maintain it.
We’ll be starting up again Saturdays in Apil 2013. Contact Jen Gold for details: firstname.lastname@example.org
Awesome Fest brings big-haired adventure to Liberty Lands, as we travel back to the innocent 1980 when vampires were just starting to become sexy, CGI was a pipe dream, and Sly Stallone still had muscles!
Bring the kids, blankets, snacks, a bug spray (as needed). Movies start at dusk.
Please note the nights as they vary…
6/21 Princess Bride
8/2 Howard the Duck

About the Liberty Lands Committee
The Liberty Lands Committee oversees the maintenance, preservation, and improvements to the community park. A small steering committee meets monthly to review all park activities, which typically include: organization of volunteers, planning workdays and cleanups, playground maintenance, community garden maintenance, organization of park events, management of park use, fundraising planning, grant management, legal issues affecting the property, materials and equipment procurement, capital improvements, long-term planning, and management of the roughly $20,000 annual operating budget.
Steering committee members also represent the park at the local and national level as advocates for open space issues. De facto subcommittees manage issues specific to the community garden, the playground, and yearly events such as the music festivals and fall festival. Volunteers are welcomed at all levels of participation from steering committee membership to attendance at workdays.
