Park Planning

Park Development & Natural Resources

The Park Development and Natural Resources Section of the Parks & Recreation Department plans and implements park improvement projects in accordance with the Anchorage Bowl Park, Natural Resource, and Recreation Facility Plan (commonly known as the Park Plan).

The Park Plan defines the standard required for park land per Municipal population and identifies park development and acquisition projects to maintain the standard as Anchorage's population grows. Park land is made up of trails, natural resource areas, community parks, neighborhood parks, and recreation facilities.
