Celebrate Trails Day at Ship Creek
April 22 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Mark your calendar for Celebrate Trails Day, a national day to get outside and enjoy your trail system. This year it happens to fall on Earth Day, too!
We are celebrating the Ship Creek Trail Downtown. We will be outside with maps, hot chocolate and FREE GIVEAWAYS.
The Downtown Trail Connection is a new federally-funded project that will connect the Ship Creek Trail to the Coastal Trail at the Small Boat Launch. Anchorage voters have supported matching funds for the project through the park bonds. Many lifelong Alaskans have never been to the boat launch, which features cultural and historical exhibits and great views.
Stop by and sign up for free giveaways, pick up a map and walk to the Small Boat Launch. (about a mile round trip)
10 Kryptonite Bike Locks valued at $70
10 Bike Lock Sets
10 Bike Helmets in various sizes
Moose Loop T-Shirts
Reflective Slap Bracelets – Bike for Clean Air
Handouts on Trail etiquette
There is limited parking in the area. We will be outside on the Ship Creek Trail in front of the Bridge restaurant at 221 W Ship Creek Ave. You can park on Ship Creek Ave near the Ulu Factory, at the Alaska Railroad public parking or from the Small Boat Launch. You can also walk or bike from downtown.
The event is sponsored by the Anchorage Park Foundation, the Anchorage Health Department and R&M Consultants, Inc.
