Free settlers who arrived on the Bellona in January 1793 began farming the area and knew it as 'Liberty Plains'. The name has been adapted for the modern residential development of Liberty Grove.
The first houses at Liberty Grove were occupied in December 1996, and it was gazetted as a suburb in 1998. It was built on former industrial land to cater for the increasing number of people buying investment properties in Sydney in the lead up to the Sydney 2000 Olympics. Its opening day attracted much attention in Sydney.
The Liberty Grove complex contains swimming pools, tennis courts, basketball court, gymnasium, village green and parks, function room, convenience store and entrances to Rhodes and Concord West. Rhodes Shopping Centre is 100m from the northern entrance.
Vehicle access to Liberty Grove is available from Homebush Bay Drive and Oulton Ave.
