Liberty Wells Neighborhood & Local Businesses

The unarguable crown jewel of the neighborhood is Liberty Park, one of Salt Lake’s oldest and largest parks. This sprawling, green, urban oasis offers residents a touch of reprieve in the form of a pond, playgrounds, tennis courts, and winding paths, spoiling residents in this area with easy access to picnics, morning jogs, or a moment of quiet reflection. An active community council works tirelessly to enhance the Liberty Wells and engage residents in local events and initiatives. And, with several bus routes and nearby TRAX stops, getting around neighboring areas from Liberty Wells is a breeze. Foodies will delight in the area’s culinary offers. Along the lines of delicious cafes that begin with "P", diners have a few options: Penny Ann’s, Picnic, and The Park. Between the three, you're set for comfort diner food, granola and bagel sandwiches, or an affordable, delicious brunch (respectively). The new Frankie & Essl’s also offers savory breakfast sandwich, or you can head to Loki Coffee on 900 S. for a tasty cup and a pastry in a very cute space. Nona—sister restaurant to Nono pizzareria—sits unassumingly in the backyard of a bungalow with string lights, plenty of foliage, and options for both outdoor and indoor, rustic dining. Retail-wise, the Maven District has an eclectic mix of old and new businesses. The recently relocated, iconic Heavy Metal Shop is just across the street from legendary Randy’s Records. There’s also Mineral and Matter, Normal Ice Cream, Passion Flour (a vegan French patisserie), and La Barba Coffee & Breakfast Tacos, among other shops. All told, this is an area well worth a long stroll or a good breakfast on a weekend afternoon.
