Oscar Anderson House Heritage Garden and ADA Walkway

The Oscar Anderson House, in Elderberry Park, is more visible and welcoming the public thanks to summer construction. The front walkway and porch underwent renovations to create a new ADA compliant entrance for people of all abilities to access the history of this Anchorage landmark, as well as opened the view to be more visible from the park and street. The design included seating and garden beds, which were filled with plants reminiscent of the 1915 homestead as a “heritage garden.” Volunteers from the Master Gardeners planted rhubarb, strawberries, day lilies, hens and chicks, and delphiniums. The group will continue to tend to the garden throughout the year.
