North Liberty Fairy Trail
North Liberty’s population just increased by 11. The newcomers, it turns out, are fairies and trolls.
Small doors along the North Liberty Recreation Trail between Penn and Cherry streets were discovered by the city’s Parks Department while out mowing the Community Center lawn. The Communications Department has interviewed the parks staff about the activity they witnessed and has compiled sketches of the creatures living inside.
Visit the doors of B-Real, Zen, Art and their friends in person or online by clicking on each door below. If visiting in person, it is easiest to park at the Community Center and take the path down to the trail. A QR code can be found next to each door that, once scanned, will direct a mobile device to the sketch of each of the doors’ inhabitants.
What are the fairies’ and trolls’ stories? We don’t know and are more interested in what you think. We’re sharing short stories submitted by residents under each creatures’ sketch. An online form to submit where your imagination takes you can be found under already published stories.
Fairy and troll doors are popping up all over North Liberty! Make a day of visiting the doors marked at residences and businesses on the map below. Children should always be accompanied by an adult.
If you discover or create a door in your front yard or place of business add it to our Google Map for others to visit.
