Anchorage Parks and Recreation
Please FUR-give us, but the spring break up is making our dog parks a little RUFF. Starting on Monday (4/18), we are closing the following dog parks for a couple of weeks to give these parks much-needed PAWS. ??
➡️ Arctic Benson Dog Park
➡️ South Anchorage Sports Small Dog Park
➡️ Valley of the Moon Dog Park
➡️ Whisper Faith Kovach Dog Park
While closed, we hope you continue to have fun recreating with your pups in one of our other dog parks, such as University Lake or Connors Bog.
