A master plan for this area was approved by the Anchorage Assembly in 1975. The Bureau of Land Management set restrictions on the Campbell Tract to protect a 720 acre area located within and separate of the 4,000 acres of Far North Bicentennial. An agreement detailing management of the area was reached in 1976 between the Municipality, State, and BLM. The parkland was acquired in 1983 by patent from the Federal Government and State of Alaska. The park was named for the United States Bicentennial.

In 2006, Anchorage Park Foundation partnered with Alaska Trails, BLM and Far North Bicentennial Trails Advisory Committee to improve park and trail safety. Funds from the State of Alaska and an APF Challenge Grant were used to install 35 signs and 5 informational kiosks throughout the park.

Anchorage Park Foundation awarded two Challenges Grants in 2008 that constructed improvements to FNBP. The first grant, awarded to Singletrack Trails, was used to build narrow, soft-surface trails for mountain bikers and foot traffic. This grant also covered installation of trail signage and two informational trailhead kiosks. The second grant, awarded to Alaskan Sled Dog and Racing Association, was used to repair five bridges throughout the park.
