  • United Way 50th Anniversary Day of Caring Project

As part of this Challenge Grant project, the Anchorage Park Foundation, the Municipality of Anchorage and the Fairview Community Council partnered with United Way of Anchorage to host a Day of Caring event to restore and enhance three neighborhood parks and the Recreation Center in Fairview. The two-day event brought 600 volunteers together to help on more than 30 projects in Fairview Park, Fairview Lions Park, Fairbanks Park, and the Anchorage Senior Center.

Volunteers expanded the community pavilion, created a new community garden, planted new trees and perennials, refurbished the volleyball and multi-use field, and much, much more. The community garden and pavilion will become focal points for the neighborhood, bringing people together and fostering stronger neighbor relationships.


In 1985, the S & S Apartments were demolished and the Anchorage Assembly voted to use the property to create a neighborhood park. Trees were planted in the park in 1992 and 1993 using funds from a state forestry grant.
