Proceeds will support North Liberty’s Next Stage
The City of North Liberty has big plans to transform Centennial Park into a magnetic gathering place.
The Centennial Center — an indoor event space and connected outdoor stage — is the first of four phases with plans to break ground next July and complete construction in summer 2025. The multifaceted facility will welcome public events like craft fairs and author visits as well as private events such as business functions and weddings. A wide range of ticketed and free programs will be showcased seasonally on the outdoor stage including performances by touring artists, comedians, symphony orchestras, local dance studios and school district choir and band ensembles.
Phases two through four of Centennial Park include the addition of a premier splash pad, an open-air pavilion, expansive plaza spaces, wheelchair-accessible playground features, expanded parking and trails, restrooms and an honor garden.
The park’s development will be funded through a variety of public and private resources, including community giving. The City of North Liberty has committed $6.5 million to the project, with the Next Stage campaign accelerating the phases with a $1 million in community support. Donations can be made through the Community Foundation of Johnson County. Total gifts of $500 or more will be recognized permanently at the park reflective of impact.
