Liberty Gardens/Thron Park

Monday, August 31, 2015

Liberty Gardens/Thron Park is a neighborhood park located at 200 North Levitt Street. 

It mainly serves the population from the surrounding ¼ miles area of west Rome, including the Liberty Gardens housing complex.

The park was redevelopment in 2003 and 2004 which followed CPTED standards. A pavilion, benches and grills were removed because they were contributing to unwanted activity.  A basketball court was removed and two new basketball courts were constructed where old old tennis courts had been. A walkway and arboretum were installed to promote a better flow of traffic and increased visibility as well as provide for educational opportunities for neighborhood children as well as a resource for the nearby Gansevoort Elementary School.
Following the improvements, calls regarding negative use have dropped significantly. There is also a ball field with backstop and a large open turf area – which were unchanged during renovation.
The playground equipment was also unchanged and features two small play structures with slides and related equipment and panels.
The department hopes to begin a neighborhood park assessment with local residents in 2010.  This assessment will help guide any future rehabilitation or renovations of this playground.
