Anchorage Downtown Placemaking

Anchorage Downtown Placemaking works to bring positive energy and use to downtown’s parks and public spaces. The program facilitates collaborative use of these spaces through inspiration, coordination, and reducing existing barriers to entry. Together with partnering organizations, Anchorage Downtown Placemaking allows space activation programming to more easily fill the downtown parksTown Square, Peratrovich Park, and the 5th Ave Rooftop Park, as well as other empty public spaces in downtown: alleyways, vacant store fronts, street corners, etc. Anchorage Downtown Placemaking packages together rental equipment, venue space, and assistance with permitting and marketing to make it easy and efficient for your business or organization to host an event downtown. The program also includes the organization of weekly community programming throughout the summer, offering fitness classes, theater and dance lessons, and more.

During the first two summers of the program, over 150 small scale events were held in Town Square Park and Peratrovich Park, including regular weekly fitness classes, concerts, theater performances, buskers, art displays, and more!
