Welcome back to your neighborhood parks! But please come prepared to pick up after your dogs. Creekside Park is a lovely neighborhood park in East Anchorage, and there are new dog owners coming to join the many who already pick up after their pets.

Lately, it is quite noticeable that just a few dog owners are failing to take care of the park. So please enjoy the longer days, but clean up after your dog so that we can all safely walk and enjoy the park. Every one of the parks in this city need the same love and care that you give to your dog. Welcome spring!
