Liberty Plaza Ready For Visitors In Downtown Branson

News

BRANSON, Mo. – The newest addition to Downtown Branson is now ready for the public to enjoy.

For months, work has been underway on phase three of the city’s “Downtown Streetscapes” project known as “Liberty Plaza.” Thursday, the city cut the ribbon on the $4.2-million dollar addition.

The plaza is the largest and most expensive effort to breathe new life into the infrastructure downtown.

“There’s a bigger picture to revitalization in downtown,” Branson Fire Chief Ted Martin says, “as we’ve seen the streetscapes change… with new street direction, new landscaping, with new light poles.”

“It will just, hopefully, encourage that future growth of this part of our economy in downtown Branson,” he says.

While the previous phases have caused headaches for business owners and drivers, construction of Liberty Plaza has had less of an impact because it focused on making over the old parking lot behind the Branson Christian Church.

The new Plaza still has parking, but it has also added a new water feature, amphitheater, seating and restrooms. Themes like faith, family and flag are also worked into the newest addition of downtown.

Martin is hopeful Liberty Plaza will serve as an anchor point for live music and events like Autumn Days in the near future.
