History

Ure Park is a 1.82 acre neighborhood park that abuts the Fish Creek. The city purchased the land from Barbara Ure in 1982, and the former Ure residence was used by the Spenard Lions Club as a meeting place.

In 2017, Parks and Recreation removed the structure that was on the site due to safety concerns and in 2018 hosted a volunteer event to limb vegetation, pick up trash, and remove invasive species. In April 2019, voters approved a $100,000 municipal bond to continue park improvements.

Project Overview

Parks and Recreation is currently looking into discovering community stakeholders and desires of the community for Ure Park. The master plan will provide a 20 year vision for the park and help identify both current and future needs. Throughout the master planning process, Parks and Rec will look to address issues and concerns, and establish a framework for future development of the park. 

Join us at the next volunteer event on Saturday, August 17th from 9am-12pm to remove invasive species and kick off the public involvement process for this park.

Public Engagement

Public engagement is important to any planning project. To ensure that the master plan aligns with the desires of the community, Parks and Recreation will be gathering public input in a variety of ways and working with community stakeholders. If you would like to participate in the Community Advisory Group, please contact Park Planner Taylor Keegan at taylor.keegan@anchorageak.gov.
