Our philosophy is to help people help themselves by taking university knowledge to where people live, work, play, develop, and lead. We work at being responsive to the needs of the people by focusing our resources on providing quality information, education and problem-solving programs for real concerns.

Whats Happening
Liberal Parks Roundup 2014
The goal of Park RoundUP is to engage families in outdoor activities throughout the Spring and Summer, and allow them to experience community parks throughout Liberal.
Park Round Up allows families/teams to relax, unplug from today's various methods of technology, and experience the beautiful natural and cultural resources that our public parks offer.
Stop by our extension office or the Liberal Parks and Recreation Office at 1109 W 7th Street and pick up your "Passport."  Then visit at least 5 of the parks and complete a simple park quest.
Turn in a completed passport by Sept. 13 to be eligible for one of the prizes, as well as be entered in a drawing for one of the ten $50 gift certificates.
Relax! get into nature! and experience our Liberal Parks.
