  1. Yoga in the Park: Every summer the Alaska Club offers free yoga in the park once a week throughout the summer, all over the state. This event is open to the public and for all skill levels. Whether you are a beginner or a regular just looking to get some fresh air, Yoga in the Park is a great way to get out, get moving, and be a part of your community.

  1. Ultimate Frisbee Pick-Up Games: Is your family ready for a little more action and fun at the Denali Park Strip this summer? Anchorage Ultimate Frisbee offers free weekly pick up games for anyone to join. Open to all skill levels, this game is a fun way to get in some exercise, enjoy the weekend and some time with family and friends. Be sure to check their website http://www.anchorageultimate.org/ for the most up to date information on pick up games, leagues and tournaments being offered all summer long. This summer they are starting up some free Skills and Drills clinics if you want to get some extra practice in between games.
  1. Disc Golf: If you are looking for something a little bit different than your average hike or trip to a park, try out Frisbee Golf. Also known as Disc Golf or most commonly abbreviated to “Frolf.” Aside from purchasing or borrowing a disc from a friend, this activity is free! There are so many courses around the State that you have your choice of difficultly, terrain and length of course. Some courses that are local favorites ranging from easiest to hardest are: Hanshew Middle School, Eagle River High School, Peters Creek and Kinkaid Park. The following website: https://www.discgolfscene.com/courses will give you a list of courses, upcoming events and up to date information on the sport. Always remember basic etiquette when playing, as this is a popular summer sport and the courses often have multiple groups playing at any given time. Wait for the group in front of you to completely finish their hole before advancing to their position, carry out all of your trash used along the way (drinks and snacks) to keep the courses safe and clean and let significantly smaller groups play through to keep the course flowing.
