It’s official! The Anchorage Assembly approved a name – Chanshtnu Muldoon Park – for our community park July 25, 2017. Chanshtnu (pronounced CHANSH-nu), meaning “grass creek,” is the Dena’ina word for Chester Creek, which winds through the park at 1301 Muldoon Road.
The U.S. Department of the Interior and the National Park Service announced a grant of $750,000 to the city toward development of Phase 2 of the park last week in July. Map: Continue reading
Muldoon Town Square Park annual clean up. Meet at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 13, in the parking lot at the Southeast corner of Muldoon Mall (next to the Park, between Samurai Sushi and the Mall) for a safety briefing. We will have cleaning supplies available.
Construction of the front portion of the Muldoon Park Strip – the part we call Muldoon Town Square – began in August 2016 and is expected to be complete by fall of 2017. Phase 1 plans call for an all-inclusive playground, an ice (skating) ribbon, pavilion, bridge across the creek, a home for the Muldoon Farmers Market and more! At least two more phases are to follow to finish the park on the old Alaska Greenhouse site at DeBarr & Muldoon.
PASSED! The Parks Bond includes funds for an all-inclusive playground at Muldoon Town Square Park, Muldoon Road at DeBarr – at the location planned for Muldoon Farmers Market starting in 2017. A destination playground will be a big draw for the farmers market and the park.
