North Liberty is booming! There are a lot of young families here and new housing, but also older folks and homes still remain. Coralville, Cedar Rapids and Iowa City are all a short drive away. The community is very active and there is always something to do or somewhere to eat. The only thing missing is a leashless dog park. Otherwise, it is a fun and safe place to live.

North Liberty is the kind of town where if you all work together, you can accomplish big things. We are somewhat small but growing town/community. We often have big community events such as Blues and BBQ, where we have hairball band play, crafts and fun activities for the kids and amazing food for everyone to enjoy. North Liberty is the type of town where if you were to walk down the street, you would see someone you knew.
What I like about North Liberty is that it is consistently changing and growing. They have parks and trails, a good grocery store and public pool and library. There are police that are constantly driving around, making the area feel safe. North Liberty also has a small town feel, but is close to Iowa City and Cedar Rapids.
