A while back I wrote a post about the battle to save Liberty Park. It was in danger of being erased by a large mixed-use project. But local activists mounted a strong defense, and on March 7 the City Council voted unanimously to designate it a historic cultural monument.
The folks at Save Liberty Park did an amazing job of rallying the community behind this effort. Not only does their web site tell the story of the fight to save the park, but it also tells why it’s such an important resource for the community. If you haven’t visited the site already, check it out.
