History

This park was leased from the Alaska Railroad (Department of Interior) in 1961 with a signed 40 year lease. The park included the old Alaska Railroad Club building located on Mystic Way. The building was heated by stream heat furnished by the Air Force. In 1980 plans were made to renovate the building. Currently the building is operated by the Curling Club and the city maintains the property. There are two buildings, one for curling and another for the Square Dance Club.
