LPRF Annual Campaign

The Liberty Parks and Recreation Foundation (LPRF), formerly the Liberty Parks and Recreation Charitable Fund, raised $60,000 in 2017 during its Annual Campaign.

The Foundation board met in November to outline how to allocate the funds to fill gaps in community need that are not met by public funding. Funding will be awarded as follows:

  • $25,000 contribution to install a new playground outside of the Liberty Community Center Child Watch. This project is made possible by supplemental funds from the Parks Special Obligation Bond.
  • New lobby furniture at the Liberty Community Center
  • Funbrella shade structure around the kids fountain at the Liberty Community Center's outdoor pool
  • New play equipment geared for 2-5 year old children at one of Liberty's existing park playgrounds
  • Video and sound equipment upgrades for the Liberty Performing Arts Theatre

A special thank you to all of our donors who made these projects possible!
