In fall 2008 and 2011, over 1,000 Anchorage parks supporters participated in grading neighborhood parks for the Anchorage Parks Report Card. The Anchorage Park Foundation and the Parks & Recreation Department use information from these “Fix-It Lists” to engage Neighborhood Park Committees in planning Fix-It efforts in parks.

The APF is proud to fund neighborhood park fix-its with support from the Rasmuson Foundation and a $68,700 2010 Alaska State Legislative Capital Grant for Harvard Park.


This park was leased from the Alaska Railroad (Department of Interior) in 1961 with a 40-year lease. The park includes two buildings. The first is the old Alaska Railroad Club building located on Mystic Way. This building is operated by the Anchorage Curling Club. The other building is operated by the Square Dance Club.
