Have a voice in improving your neighborhood parks…using your smart phone! The Anchorage Park Foundation and the Anchorage Parks and Rec. Department are looking for to get input on parks using the Park Report Card feature on their new Anchorage Parks Mobile App. The free download is available for Androids and iPhones, and features a full park directory by name, location, and will link you directly to a map if you ever need directions (never get lost again!)
We did paper report cards in 2008, and thanks to the help of volunteer evaluators, the Anchorage Park Foundation since then has raised and invested $2 million into our city’s park system. Anchorage has 223 parks, with assets valued at $750 million, and with approximately $250 million in deficiencies and needed repair.
Not an fancy schmancy phone person? You can download the Park Report Card from our website and return completed forms to 715 L St. by October 2nd. Get started today to help improve our parks! Email Shannon@AnchorageParkFoundation.org for more info on how to get involved.
