A message from one of our sponsors...
"Waterbody was founded on the belief that connection to nature is at the root of overall wellness. We feel so fortunate to have access to incredible trails, parks, and green spaces right outside our backdoor, and stewardship of these spaces for all to enjoy is a core value of our business. That’s why we’re proud to support Wrangell Parks & Recreation’s Helping Our Parks Initiative!”
Wrangell Parks and Recreation Department’s mission is to support active and healthy lifestyles by providing a variety of quality programs, activities, facilities, and parks. We provide programs and activities to the community by way of our municipal parks and facilities. Our municipal green space boosts our local economy, enriches our quality of life and caters to the visitor population that comes to Wrangell.
Wrangell’s park infrastructure is aging and in need of revitalization. In 2017, the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and Director developed a creative and collaborative approach to addressing our needs via the “Helping Our Parks” (HOP) project. This annual event is designed to help offset costs associated with park and trail projects, strengthen relationships with community advocates/partners and inspire a culture of stewardship in our municipal green space.
In the past, this event has raised $16,627 and has led to the resurfacing of Volunteer Trail, improvement of City Park shelters, Lower Cemetery revitalization, trail clearing, alder removal, building maintenance and more. Over 100 businesses and individuals have contributed to date. It’s particularly impressive to note the 1000 volunteer hours that have been poured into the HOP events over the past several years.
