Features & Amenities
- Accessible play equipment for 5-12 year olds
This property was purchased in 1972 and publicly dedicated in 1974. The property was previously owned by Central Alaska Utilities and used as a well site. It had been a play area for the neighborhood children, and the community wanted it to become park land.
At a community meeting in 1972, the general consensus was to keep the area as an open space park. In 1982, the community proposed to clear and develop trails, construct a seating and play area and to create a landscaped lawn area. In 2003, new play equipment and landscaping were added.
Summer 2012, volunteers from the Alaska Native Justice Center, ASRC, Girl Scout Troop 175 and neighbors all came together to improve the appearance of the park’s outer edge by increasing visibility in the surrounding wooded areas and removing hazardous and dead trees. The volunteers also worked hard to lay top seed, paint bollards, and fix-up the kid’s dirt bike course.
Number of Volunteers: 54; Volunteer Hours: 162
