Future Liberty Lake Regional Park plans to be unveiled

LIBERTY LAKE, Wash. - A new master plan for Liberty Lake Regional Park is taking shape after receiving significant input from users groups and community members.

A planning team lead by Bernardo Wills Architects of Spokane will be hosting an open house at City of Liberty Lake Council Chamber next Thursday, October 19.

Sketches and photo examples of proposed enhancements will be on display, and organizers are hoping for additional public comments.

“From the beginning, we knew one of the biggest challenges would be to address the tremendous growth in use we’ve seen at the park while maintaining what folks currently love about it,” said Paul Knowles, Park Planning and Real Estate Coordinator for Spokane County Parks. 

Bill LaRue, lead for the team hired to develop the master plan added, “The park is already a treasure, but having a long-range plan in place will help the County address known issues as well as actually preserving and improving things folks love most about it.”

Everyone is encouraged to attend and provide feedback. The planning team will make a short informational presentation about the project and be on hand to visit with the public from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

After the 19, the planning team and parks staff will work to refine and finalize the Liberty Lake Regional Park Master Plan by the end of the year. For more information on the plan, including project documents, draft design scenarios and meeting dates, visit www.llrp-masterplan.com.
