David Green Memorial Park
3681 MacInnes St.
David Green Memorial Park is a neighborhood use park located in the Tudor neighborhood. The park encompasses 2.89 acres and features ADA accessible playground equipment for 5-12 year olds, a large open field, a picnic shelter with tables, and a 16-spot parking lot.
In 1978, the Municipality of Anchorage purchased this land with a combination of state funds and a special assessment to the area homeowners.
In 1989, the park was renamed from Crescent Park to David Green Memorial Park in honor of David Green for his family values and love of children.
In 1997, the current Kids’ Kingdom Playground was funded and built through the efforts of groups of businesses, organizations, and volunteers.
Report Card and Funding
In 2008, neighbors and community members filled out a report card and identified several issues including concerns about the edging around the playground, unattractive trash cans, cracks in the pathway creating a tripping hazard, and the absence of a crosswalk leading to the church across the street.
In 2011, neighbors and community members again came together to evaluate David Green Memorial Park and while they noted high marks for safety, appearance and functionality of the park, they also noted the following concerns: the appearance of the playground declining, the need for an improved playground surface, and replacing trash cans near the playground and picnic shelter.
Summer 2015 Improvements
