The Anchorage Park Foundation facilitates park improvement projects that are driven by neighborhood initiative.
We make park improvement projects happen, by bringing together neighbors, park users, Anchorage Parks & Recreation, funders, volunteers and contractors.
We are an independent nonprofit — separate from but working closely with the city, to upgrade park assets. We care about what park users want, and are responsible and accountable to the intent of our donors, neighborhoods and volunteers.
Anchorage has hundreds of parks and a world-class trail system. We understand that a healthy park system is a long-term commitment, and we strategically lead selected projects based on meaningful donor and volunteer support.
We worked with local families, the Parks & Recreation Department, and policy makers to raise funds and build six playgrounds this summer. Read more ›
