During the week of July 20, 2009, volunteers, neighbors and Youth Employment in Parks crews worked together to make fix-its identified in the Anchorage Parks Report Card.

The results of the Fix-Its in Wilson Park are impressive. Youth
Employment in Parks crews worked hard removing underbrush to open up sight-lines and hopefully deter illicit activity mentioned
by the community in the Anchorage Park Report Card. YEP crews, volunteers from GraceWorks , VolunTeens, staff and community volunteers:

  • Installed new park rules sign & and entryway markers
  • Replenished pea gravel in play area to improve safety
  • Removed graffiti and cleaned play equipment
  • Installed new trash receptacles and dog station
  • Installed new benches near play area and
  • Improved line of sight in the park by trimming trees
  • Repaired potholes in parking lot

For more details on the accomplishments in this and other neighborhood parks, please read the 2009 Neighborhood Park Fix-It Summary Report.


The Municipality of Anchorage purchased a portion of this parkland in 1972, and made an additional purchase in 1982. Development of the park began in 1973. Picnic areas were spread out through the park and two play areas developed.

In 1991, Exxon donated funds for new play equipment and the equipment was installed in October of that year.
