The top three most important values for the Fairbanks North Star Borough are: Providing affordable activities and facilities to all Continuing to focus on providing family-oriented activities Ensuring parks and recreation opportunities are accessible to all residents

CARLSON CENTER

The John A. Carlson Community Activity Center is currently closed for renovations and upgrades.

On June 13, 1990, the Fairbanks North Star Borough opened the doors to the John A. Carlson Community Activity Center. Originally designed to be a hub of community activity for the residents of Fairbanks, it has operated for over 30 years as a large-event venue, a trade show/ conference space, home ice of the UAF Nanooks, and a gathering place for a variety of community uses. Since its very beginning, the Carlson Center has been owned by the Fairbanks North Star Borough and managed through a modified third-party contract. When the latest contract expired June 30, 2021, the Borough was faced with an important decision: how should the Carlson Center be managed moving forward? The Borough decided to assume the management of the facility directly, make it more of a community center in operation, and make it more affordable to the community to use and enjoy.

LOCATION 2010 2nd Ave. Fairbanks, AK 99701

HOURS OF OPERATION

CLOSED THROUGH SEPT. 1ST CONTACTS (907)459-1087 carsloncenter@fnsb.gov Facebook @FNSBCarlsonCenter

The Carlson Center is operated as a subdivision of the newly created Parks and Recreation Riverside Division. In addition to the Carlson Center, the Riverside Division will include the historic 44-acre Pioneer Park. The two properties are adjacent to each other, and each will be strengthened by the other, utilizing staffing and equipment much more efficiently. The Carlson Center, under the general direction of the Parks and Recreation Director, is managed by the Riverside Superintendent, formerly the Pioneer Park Manager. This superintendent oversees the operations of both facilities. The Carlson Center has a general manager along with support staff to facilitate the public’s use of the facility. Foo Fighters at the Carslon Center August 21, 2021.

PIONEER PARK

HISTORY OF THE PARK

SUMMER SEASON

In late 1960, the Pioneers of Alaska requested public land from the State of Alaska. The plan was to create a tourist attraction that showed historical Alaska exhibits. The Pioneers of Alaska formed a non-profit, Pioneer Memorial Park, Inc., for the purpose of pursuing the park project. In 1965, the Alaska 67, or A-67, committee requested that the park be used for the 100th year celebration of Alaska's purchase from Russia. A-67 requested federal funding to develop the Pioneer Memorial State Historical Park. A-67 subleased the Park from Pioneer Memorial Park Inc. and the park was opened as "Alaska 67 Centennial Exposition". In 1968 Pioneer Memorial Park Inc. quitclaimed the park to the State of Alaska. That same day the State of Alaska quitclaimed the park to the City of Fairbanks. On May 1, 1968, City of Fairbanks Mayor, Red Boucher signed a letter to the Prime Minister of Ottawa, Canada, stating that "Alaskaland" was the new name for the 40-acre Exposition resulting from the A-67 Centennial site in Fairbanks.

Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day

No admission fee. The park is open from 5:00 am to midnight for selfguided walking tours to explore the artifacts and buildings, all of which are marked with interpretive signage, as well as holiday lighting. Some museums may be open for limited hours, please contact the park office for details. Bear Gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday 12:00 pm 6:00 pm. Playground is open. Square Dance Hall offers scheduled events and classes. The Folk School offers classes.

In July, 1987 the City of Fairbanks quitclaimed Alaskaland to the Fairbanks North Star Borough. In 2001, the name of the park was changed to Pioneer Park to more accurately reflect the historical importance of the park and reduce the expectation of a theme park.

OUTDOOR RECREATION

OUTDOOR RECREATION Schedules subject to change. Some program information may have changed after this guide has been printed. The online version is available for download at: parks.fnsb.gov.

TRAILS OFFICE The Trails Office is responsible for implementing the Comprehensive Recreational Trail Plan (Trail Plan), working closely with other Borough Departments and the Trails Advisory Commission. The Trail Plan is part of the Borough's Regional Comprehensive Plan and was created in 1985. The Trail Plan identifies many trails throughout the Borough that have high recreational value for the community and deserve some level of protection for public access. Trails in the Trail Plan cross many types of property and have varying degrees of public access. Public access is not guaranteed across all sections of trails in the Trail Plan. Trails in the Trail Plan receive protection across a piece a property if and when that property is ever subdivided via the Borough's Code of Ordinances, Title 17 "Subdivisions." Over the years, several new trails have been added to the Trail Plan. The latest trail, the Cranberry Trail, was added in 2006. Fairbanks residents can nominate new and existing trails to be added to the Trail Plan by making recommendations to the Trails Coordinator and the Trails Advisory Commission.

TRAILS ADVISORY COMMISSION The Trails Advisory Commission (TAC) was established by Borough Ordinance in May of 1980. The responsibilities and duties of the Commission are to: inventory and review current trails and make recommendations concerning present and future needs, review state and borough land disposals in regard to trail needs and trail routing, provide a forum for citizen input in trail assessments and needs, review and recommend adjustments needed in the Comprehensive Recreational Trails Plan, and encourage voluntary incorporation of trails where needed in subdivision plans. The Commission is comprised of 15 borough at-large residents who are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the Borough Assembly. Applications are available on line and through the Mayor’s office and the Parks and Rec office. The Commission is required to meet quarterly, but generally meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Times, places and agendas are included in public notices and also on the Borough web site.

If you are interested in the Trail Plan, nominating a new trail, providing or securing a trail easement, or have other trailrelated interests, contact the Trails Coordinator: Bryant Wright, (907) 459-7401, bryant.wright@fnsb.gov.

FAIRBANKS SUMMER TRAILS CHALLENGE

All Ages

What is the Trails Challenge? The Fairbanks Trails Challenge is an all-ages, all-abilities, outdoor scavenger hunt of epic proportions! The Trails Challenge is designed to get you out with your friends and family to explore our wonderful local trails, both new and familiar. Each summer and winter season, Parks Department staff temporarily installs special signs in secret locations along a dozen or so local trails. While the signs are up, we invite everyone to visit the trails and try and find the signs. Along the way we hope you have a chance to learn new skills, see new places, and make positive memories. How do you take the Trails Challenge? Anyone is allowed to participate in the search. When you find a sign, prove you made it by taking a “selfie” photo with the sign and posting it on social media with the hashtag “#FNSBTrails” or email your photo to Parks@fnsb.gov. And of course, leave the sign to be found by the next trail challenge participant. Participants who find AT LEAST TEN signs during the event can win prizes from local sponsors and the coveted Trailblazer Award. Participants under the age of ten can find at least five signs to win the Junior Trailblazer Award! Whether you find one or find them all, challenge yourself to get outside and enjoy nature! When can we take the Trails Challenge? The Trails Office hosts two Fairbanks Trails Challenge events each year: a Summer Trails Challenge and a Winter Trails Challenge. The Summer Trails Challenge starts in June and lasts through September. Start and end dates fluctuate depending on weather and trail conditions. The signs stay in place for the season then are removed to be placed in new and different locations for the next challenge. So each season you are challenged to have a new adventure! TRAILS CHALLENGE QUESTIONS? Contact the Trails Coordinator at bryant.wright@fnsb.gov or 907-459-7401. Check the Trails Office webpage for MAPS and TRAILS INFORMATION!
