About

Welcome to Remember Libertyland! My name is John Stevenson and I am the guy who can’t quite let Libertyland go. I started this website as a way to keep the memories of Libertyland fresh in the minds of those who were able to pass through its gates. I’ve called Memphis home for most of my life, and as a coaster enthusiast, taking a trip to Libertyland was a regular occurrence of my childhood years. When its closure was announced, I decided to join the Save Libertyland group to fight to keep it alive. Though we weren’t necessarily successful in saving Libertyland, we did save many parts of it, including the historic carousel and Zippin Pippin.

Remember Libertyland was launched on June 26th, 2006, around the time that parts of Libertyland were being auctioned off. Since then, I’ve been dedicated to documenting not only the park’s history, but what happens to what’s left of Libertyland in the future.

I hope you enjoy the site!

    Hi, I was just wondering if some of the park is still accessible somehow? I really want to get in to take some photos of the old rides.

      Katie,

      Unfortunately, the park was completely razed in early 2010. Nothing remains but a grassy field with large trees scattered throughout.
