Conflict of Interest

LPR reserves the right to refuse use of City of Liberty property for activities that are in direct conflict with programs, services, and rentals provided by the department. Violators will be asked to suspend such activities immediately. Use by repeat offenders will be terminated.

Inclusive Statement

LPR provides recreation programs that are open to all. The department seeks and supports participation by all citizens with a variety of interests and abilities. If you or a family member need accommodations or support to fully participate in the department programs, please call 816-439-4360 prior to enrolling to explore available opportunities.  Please note the LPR is not staffed to provide one-on-one aide services. Individuals requiring one-on-one assistance whether physical, behavioral or otherwise, will need to provide their own aide.

School Partnerships

Many of our athletic activities are made possible by the cooperative use agreement with the Liberty Public School District. The district makes gymnasiums and ball fields available to LPR when they are not in use. In turn, LPR provides pool and theater access to the Liberty School District.

Code of Conduct

All LPR programs, services and facilities provide a positive, family based environment for the community.  All users are expected to conduct themselves in a manner conducive to that environment.  All users are expected to adhere to the policies and procedures of the department. Destruction of property and/or use of abusive language and behavior will not be tolerated.  Any behavior in direct conflict with the values upheld by this organization will not be tolerated. This behavior includes but is not limited to bulling; harassment; threats; intimidation; profanity; sexual, racial, ethnic, and religious comments or statements; comments related to sex, appearance, age, and race are specifically prohibited.  Alcohol products and weapons of any kind are strictly prohibited on LPR property. Tobacco products are prohibited on all property except as designated according to ordinance. All advertising for activities/events held on department property is subject to department staff approval. Violators of the code of conduct will be expelled and repeat offenders will have their privileges terminated immediately, both without refund of fees.

Department Rules

Liberty Community Center (LCC) Policies were established and are enforced to ensure that the patrons utilizing the facility have a positive experience. Please help us make your visit to the LCC an enjoyable experience by following the established facility rules.

Scholarship Assistance

The Liberty Parks & Rec Foundation is pleased to provide a scholarship assistance for programs administered by LPR. This program is designed for children who, without financial assistance, would not have the opportunity to participate in the Department’s youth activities or LCC memberships. The scholarship program provides greater accessibility by partially covering the cost of current fees for youth who qualify. Learn more and apply »

Program Registration

You may register for LPR programs online, by mail, phone and fax or at the LCC (using cash, check, or charge card) during open facility hours. Due to the large volume of calls and walk-ins received on the early and open days of registration for each brochure, no fax registrations or voice mail messages can be guaranteed. All programs are scheduled at the LCC unless otherwise stated. Learn more and register »

Smoking and Tobacco Policy

The LCC has a no smoking or tobacco products policy. Please follow the guidelines.

Photographs and/or Video

Frequently, LPR takes video or photographs of people enjoying programs, special events, or parks and facilities. These videos and photographs are for the City of Liberty publications, website, social media and/or cable programs. They are used at the discretion of the City of Liberty and become its sole property.

Outside groups requesting  access to  members and participants of LPR facilities and program for videos and/or photos must first obtain permission from all participants. Photos of individuals under the age of 18 must first obtain permission from parents/guardians. Photos and videos are strictly prohibited in private areas of all facilities (i.e. restrooms, dressing rooms, etc.).


We have always stressed an open door policy and invite our members to talk with us about successes and concerns. We rely on how our members, visitors and program participants view us. You can email your questions, suggestions and concerns to us and let us know how we are doing!

Lost and Found

For items lost at the LCC, please check with the front desk staff.  For items lost at Capitol Federal® Sports Complex please call the complex office at 816.439.4390. You can then pick the item up from the complex or the LCC. All items turned in will be held for one week, after which time items will be donated to a local charitable organization. LPR is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Criminal Background Checks

LPR relies heavily on voluntarism to provide sports programs to the youth of our community. The department recognizes the ongoing concern regarding the potential harm to children from unscrupulous persons drawn to youth activities. In an effort to protect children who participate in organized sporting activities with the City of Liberty, LPR is requiring criminal background checks be conducted for all youth sports personnel.

All coaches, assistants and volunteers who may be placed in a supervisory role of children must have a current background check on file with LPR.

Implementing this practice is recommended by the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA) in an effort to make communities safe by advancing optimum volunteer management practices. coaches will be screened on an annual basis through the NRPA’s recommended third party vendor.
