Scenic Park Playground Opens at 1pm - Ribbon Cutting with Scenic Elementary
Muldoon Neighborhood Celebrates Anchorage's Newest Playground
ANCHORAGE, Alaska, Thursday, September 12th, 1 p.m., 7305 Hennings Way – Imagine 75 happy kids running down the trail from Scenic Elementary to Scenic Park, lit with new energy efficient LEDs and a Safe Route to School. They are headed to the brand new playground, which passed final inspection on Tuesday. Want to see this is person? Join us for a ribbon cutting for the Scenic Playground with Scenic Elementary third grade students today at 1 p.m.
Jennifer Schmitz, Principal of Scenic Park Elementary says, “As a school and a part of this community, we are thrilled that there is another safe place for our families to spend time and for our children to play.”
Neighbor and Scenic Park VIP committee member Catherine Carte rejoices, “"Our Scenic Foothills community welcomes another safe place for children to play."
In 2003, vandals burned down the play equipment at Scenic Park. A decade later, this new playground has been installed thanks to the Alaska State Legislature, Anchorage Park Foundation, and Anchorage Parks & Recreation Department. A group of engaged neighbors and members of the Scenic Foothills Community Council set the priorities for the revitalized park plan.
Rep. Pruitt says, “I’m glad we were able to get these improvements for Scenic Park. Thanks to everyone in the community for making this project possible.”
The Anchorage Park Foundation mobilizes public support and financial resources for Anchorage parks, trails, and recreation opportunities.
