Fun FREE Weekend Idea – Liberty Park
I am sure that living in the Salt LakeValley or around here you have been to Liberty Park at least once, but if you haven’t been been for a while, its time to go back! This is one of my kids favorite places to go for two reasons: There are three big playground areas, and there is a Splash Pad! They play and act crazy, the run through the water and laugh and then go back and play some more and act crazy! Its great.
There are picnic benches and tables scattered throughout the park, so you can bring lunch with you and eat while the kids are playing. Mine like to run back and forth between bites. If you plan on playing on the splash pad, make sure to bring a towel or change of clothes. There are bathrooms located just to the south of the splash pad area.
The playground equipment is great. It accommodates every from ages 0-99 and there is something fun for everyone to do. The best time of day to go is early afternoon since its not as crowded and the weather is warm. There are loads of things to do for families with older children too, such as Basketball, Volleyball, Swimming Pool, Rollerblading, etc…Check out all the details on the Salt Lake City Parks Page (pictures, driving directions, info about more).
