Liberty Park sports facility in Sterling Heights to close in March

Owner says declining revenues forced sale of park

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. – After more than 30 years in business, the owner of Liberty Park in Sterling Heights have announced the 51-acre sports facility on Mound and 14 Mile roads will soon be closing.

The facility was a place to blow off a little steam or socialize and talk. It was a combination of practice and play.

But now, ownership is begging for mulligans, realizing the sign for soccer sign-ups is lying. By the end of March, Liberty Park of America will be closed. The owner said declining revenues has lead to the park being solid.

The ball fields will remain empty until they're torn down. Sterling Heights is considering a rezoning application, which would turn the park into a FedEx trucking facility.

Visitors who have spent time at the field are wondering where they'll go next.
