The Anchorage Reflexology Path at Folker Park was envisioned by members of the Alaska Reflexology Association (AKRA) as a community space where people could learn about and experience reflexology in a relaxing and healing environment.

Thanks to community support, AKRA’s vision for a reflexology path is becoming a reality. AKRA was awarded a 2019 Community Challenge Grant from the Anchorage Park Foundation. The Anchorage Park Foundation and Municipality of Anchorage Park’s and Recreation chose to support the path as it fulfills the community’s vision of Folker Park as a “designated intergenerational health and healing park”, accessible and inclusive for all users. The location is ideal because it is within walking distance of Horizon House, Providence Medical Center, the University of Alaska, and many local businesses and neighborhoods, which will bring diverse populations together to experience and enjoy the path.

Alaska Reflexology Association
