Liberty Park

Contact Information

Liberty Park is Renton's oldest park facility. The 12-acre park was purchased from the Sartori family on July 14, 1914, and was first known as "City Park." This name was later changed to "Liberty Park" to commemorate the first World War.

Liberty Park is the city's major downtown park and ballfield area. It also serves as the venue for the Renton River Days celebration.

The Liberty Park Shelter is undergoing repairs and will not be available for rent until further notice.

Playground Replacement

Identified as a major project by the Citizens Advisory Committee in 2018 to maintain the park's existing amenities and included as part of the 2019 Parks Bond, the playground at Liberty Park was replaced and reopened on August 25, 2021. The existing playground was 23 years old and the oldest in the Renton Park system. Landscape Structures, Inc. and PlayCreation, Inc. provided the design, demolition of the existing equipment, and the furnishing and installing of the new play equipment.

The new playground features play structures for ages 2-5 and 5-12, including swings, unique climbing structures, spinners, slides, all-abilities rocker seat, wheelchair glider, and free-standing play amenities. In addition, the existing Engineered Wood Fiber play surface was replaced with a poured-in-place rubberized surface.

Skate Park at Liberty Park

Renton's Skate Park Skateoffers children, families, and skating enthusiasts exciting thrills - from quarter-pipes and skateable artwork, to highlights such as a twinkie, a funbox, mounds, bowls, a half-pipe, and more. 

What sets Renton's park apart from other area skate parks is the inclusion of skateable artwork funded by the Renton Municipal Arts Commission. The artwork is comprised of whoop-de-dos, a series of hump-like ramps. The effect is of a "river" of colored concrete with boulders. It is also called "Rolling Waters" and mimics the motion of water.

The skate park covers about 8,400 square feet and includes obstacles for varying degrees of ability. All levels of skaters were involved in the design process.

Skater-friendly elements include two bowls, hips (two ramps meeting at an angle), quarter-pipes and half-pipes-(curved ramps), a funbox (which includes ledges and a railing) and a twinkie (an elongated, curved ramp).
