Turnagain Times Tidbits

Now that the Turnagain Times has passed into the annals of history, it’s appropriate to look back at its 20-year past after its final issue was published Nov. 2, 2017.

The following excerpt is from the third issue of the Turnagain Times, published July 2, 1998 on page 3 and written by Ken Osuna.

In the future downtown Girdwood may feature an area where people park their cars in a couple of large lots and walk to downtown businesses on a system of paths through Townsquare Park. New buildings would face the park which would serve as a town square with a gazebo, flower gardend, banches and maybe even a small pond and ice rink. Walkways would connect the downtown area to Crow Creek Road, and a pedestrian underpass would allow people to walk to the Forest Fair Park and tennis courts without crossing the Alyeska Highway.
