North Russian Jack Springs Park
Anchorage, AK USA
With a great deal of community effort, this park in Anchorage, Alaska, was transformed from an abandoned area to the vibrant and bustling recreation hub it is today. A PlayBooster® playstructure has been re-imagined as a polar bear named Nola. Giant concrete paws anchor Nola to the ground. Kids ages 5 to 12 travel through the aurora borealis before sliding out of Nola’s mouth. Nearby, a large raven keeps Nola company while overseeing all the kids climbing the attached nets or swinging across on the Triple Ring Fling™. For kids ages 2 to 5, a colorful Weevos® playsystem is also topped with a few ravens who look to be chatting about all the busyness below—swinging, sliding, climbing and imagining. Other Alaskan-themed playstructures, including a boat, a small airplane and an airport, offer additional funtime fodder.
