Liberty has a rich history in our community. Built in the 1970s as a YMCA, it was later converted to a Jewish Community Center. The City of Plano eventually bought the property and opened it as Liberty Recreation Center in 2004. “Its centralized location and proximity to schools and homes make it a popular place for people of all ages to get fit and make friends,” said Supervisor Kristie Bell. The center is known for its annual Liberty Block Party, a popular event that brings the Plano community together for a day of free food, fitness demos and fun.

“We’ve always been known as the hidden gem of all of our recreation centers, and we take great pride in the sense of community we bring to this sector of Plano,” said Bell. “People are going to be blown away by our new makeover. The additions and enhancements we have been able to give to the facility are just what our staff needs in order to continue to serve our patrons with the level of excellence they expect and deserve.”
