Project Status Update

The project will occur in two phases, Phase 1 was completed in summer 2014. Construction of Phase 2 started on Tues. May 26th and is anticipated to go until mid-October. All major trail events will be accommodated by re-opening the trail for events. Pedestrian and Bicycle detour routes will be posted on the Parks and Recreation Facebook page, Twitter and here on the project web site while work has commenced.

Great news today, the Chester Creek Trail project has now been officially completed!!! A small crew will return in the spring to finish a few punch list items such as seeding and other minor repairs, but the trail has been swept and is now entirely yours to enjoy.

Thank you ALL for your patience this summer and for your continued support of Anchorage Parks and Trails!!!

To celebrate the re-opening of the trail AND the installation of the new bridge at the Westchester Lagoon, there will be a parade and costume party tomorrow night. More info:
