The area to the south of Liberty Park is referred to as the Liberty Wells neighborhood. Here, neighbors enjoy the proximity to downtown and may often be found in the popular leash-free dog park Herman Franks Park, enjoying brunch at the Park Café on the weekends, or sipping a latté at Alchemy Coffee.
The gem of the neighborhood is the 80-acre Liberty Park. For over a hundred years, families have gathered year round to partake of the public facilities that include children’s playgrounds, horseshoe pits, basketball courts, volleyball courts, tennis courts, a jogging path, picnic areas, and a pond with two islands. Tracy Aviary is located within the park and since 1938, has housed many rare and endangered birds. Sitting in the northeast corner of the park is the Historic Chase Home, which houses a folk museum; and Chase Mill, the oldest commercial building still standing in Utah.
The homes that border the park and surrounding streets are pre-1950s bungalows and are well-maintained and sought after by families looking for an alternative to downtown living. Over the past several years, this area has been the epicenter of modern and energy efficient infill home projects, making it an ideal area to purchase a home and raise a family.
