Check on the Outdoor Pool’s Status

This summer, our outdoor pool has having trouble keeping up with the hundreds of swimmers using it every day this summer, requiring early closures when the deep end becomes too cloudy for our lifeguards to see all the way to the bottom of the deep end. This is a safety issue we cannot compromise on and requires us to close the outdoor pool.

If you want to check on the status of the outdoor pool before you arrive, please call the recreation department’s front desk at (319) 626-5716.

We Faced Down the Coldest Winter in Years. Now Celebrate with Fire (and Ice)

As we emerge from the coldest temperatures in years, North Liberty’s Beat the Bitter is excited to celebrate with the community at the free family Fire & Ice Friday presented by GEICO, on Feb. 1, 2019, from 3 to 7 p.m.

Fire & Ice Friday includes horse-drawn carriage rides, the opening of the public ice skating rink, a bonfire with s’mores, a fireworks finale and more at Penn Meadows Park, 170 N. Dubuque Street.

“After days stuck at home without school, Fire & Ice Friday offers a chance for families to do something off the couch. We’re embracing winter and are excited to celebrate with the community,” says Jillian Miller, the City of North Liberty’s community engagement coordinator and chair of the planning committee. “This bitter will not beat us.”

Adults are invited to get active during the Winter Games presented by Scheels on Feb. 2, starting with the 5K-ish Obstacle Run at 9 a.m., also at Penn Meadows Park.

Beat the Bitter runs through Saturday, Feb. 2, with additional events hosted by local organizations and businesses. Explore the full schedule and register at
