Letter: Thanks park foundation

September 19, 2013 

Six recent park upgrades did not get nearly enough attention as they happened this past summer. Through the good work of Beth Nordlund, her small Anchorage Park Foundation staff and large group of amazing volunteers, numerous public parks around town have been given major upgrades, all in a very cost effective manner. In most cases the improvements were far beyond what the muni parks budget could afford.

The Alaska Legislature showed confidence and supported the park foundation by supplementing their private donations to get the job done. When you count the rehabilitation of the Cuddy Family Midtown Park for children and adults who experience disabilities, you can see what a community gem we have with the Anchorage Park Foundation.

It was a job very well done with more good things to come
