The Rooftop at 5th Avenue and B Street is opening June 9, 2016. The Rooftop was created with the idea to re-activate property of the Anchorage Community Development Authority that was underutilized and revitalize it for the benefit of downtown Anchorage workers, residents and tourists.
The Rooftop features half-court basketball, two concrete ping pong tables, a concrete chess table and lots of benches to sit on to enjoy a lunch break or take in the beautiful mountain scenery. For those that just want to get their walking time in, walk 6 times around the rooftop and get your 1 mile in or 2,000 steps!
The Rooftop is available for use Monday-Sunday 6am-10pm. Additional video equipment has been installed and The Rooftop will be monitored by our EasyPark Dispatch team to provide a safe and secure environment. As a reminder, be sure to bring your own equipment (i.e. basketball, chess pieces, or ping pong paddles/balls).
EasyPark is also renting out The Rooftop for special events and will explore the idea of outdoor movies and music events later this year.
