MVCC - Improving Davis Park is the number 1 priority in the Mountain View Targeted Neighborhood Plan (adopted October 2016). Please reference the Davis Park Master Plan Draft / Approved version when complete. MVTNP Reads: 1. Improve Davis Park Davis Park is one of Anchorage’s largest parks and could be a destination park for northeast and areawide Anchorage residents. However, Davis Park is currently only used by a few groups; disc golf, rugby, and youth baseball groups. Poor visibility, routine camping in the wooded areas, and few amenities mean that Davis Park is rarely used. To transform Davis Park into a well-used park that is an asset to the area, we support the creation of the Davis Park Master Plan, the process for which began in fall 2014, and full funding to implement that plan
