MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The City of Memphis is proud to announce the evolution of the historic Fairgrounds property into an expanded and unified campus vision now to be known as Liberty Park.
Liberty Park represents iconic destinations including the Liberty Bowl, Tiger Lane, the Children’s Museum of Memphis, and the Kroc Center, and it will grow to include a mixed-use, public-private development and sports and events center. The project $200 million transformation will see phased openings beginning in 2022.
“Despite the issues we are dealing with stemming from COVID-19, we have to simultaneously plan for the future,” said Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland. “Building on the spirit of an iconic past, known for years as the Fairgrounds, Liberty Park is a destination that moves a historic site into its next century to, one day, bring Memphians and visitors together.”
