The Municipality of Anchorage acquired this parkland in January 1973. The park has Sand Lake on one side, Sand Lake School on another and homes on the other two sides. Trail access into the park is by the school.

This small park next to Sand Lake Elementary School offers the only public access to Sand Lake. The Anchorage Rowing Club frequents the park, and installed a floating dock with an Anchorage Park Foundation Challenge Grant in 2006.
