In fall 2008, 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.

In addition to APF and PRD efforts, Eagle Scout candidate Franklin Durr raised matching funds and recruited neighborhood volunteers to make the “Fix-Its” in Little Dipper Park in Summer 2011. Go Franklin!

The APF is proud to fund neighborhood park fix-its with support from the Rasmuson Foundation and a $55,000 2010 Alaska State Legislative Capital Grant for Little Dipper Park.


This park was purchased in 1979 to add more parkland to the community. It is named for the street where it is located.
