. The municipality covers an area of 44.44 km² (17.16 mile²) of which 3.37 km² (1.30 mile²) is water.

The municipality of Liesveld was formed on 1 January 1986 from the former municipalities of Groot-Ammers, Langerak, Nieuwpoort, and Streefkerk. It consists of the population centres Groot-Ammers, Langerak, Nieuwpoort, Streefkerk, and Waal.

Its name is probably derived from a low-lying swampy area filled with reed grasses (Dutch: "lies" - Glyceria aquatica) near Gelkenes. Castle Liesvelt was built on such a reedy field, giving its name to the Lords of Liesvelt, who owned lands within the municipality.
