Davis Park Master Plan
5081 Mountain View Drive (View Map)
The Davis Park Master Plan was approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission in October 2017.
OVERVIEW OF THE MASTER PLAN
Davis Park is a large community use park located in the Mountain View neighborhood of Anchorage. The park serves both the local neighborhood as well as the larger community and provides for a unique mix of recreational activities not found in other parts of Anchorage.
In recent years, residents and community leaders have sought to transform Davis Park into a major community asset. This is reflected in the 2015 Mountain View Targeted Neighborhood Plan which identifies “Improving Davis Park” as one of the community’s top five priorities.
The Davis Park Master Plan provides a 20 year vision for management and development of Davis Park. The plan embodies the community’s vision to provide active and healthy recreational opportunities to the residents of Mountain View and northeast Anchorage. The master plan identifies community needs, addresses issues and concerns, establishes a framework for future development of the park, and provides a path forward for future investment.
