Anchorage Parks & Recreation
The Anchorage Parks and Recreation Department is responsible for beautifying, operating and maintaining Park and Recreation assets (parks, trails, community recreation centers and community pools) as well as implementing year-round recreation programs for all ages and caring for our natural resource areas. The Department is also responsible for horticulture and park maintenance. The Department provides support for community gardens, dog parks and Youth Employment in Parks (YEP). Additionally, one of the most important and exciting jobs for Parks and Recreation staff is working with Anchorage’s impressive numbers of volunteers. In 2013, over 6,000 volunteers contributed over 125,000 hours of service to the Parks and Recreation Department.
What we have:
10,946 acres of municipal parkland; 223 parks with 82 playgrounds; 250 miles of trails and greenbelts linking neighborhoods with surrounding natural open spaces and wildlife habitat (135 miles of paved trails); 110 athletic fields; 5 pools; 11 recreation facilities; year-round and seasonal Park Department employees.
