Farnsworth Park is centrally located in a sunny warm setting, surrounded by a variety of businesses, residences, and group homes. The original parking lot, pavilion and playground were constructed in the mid 1980’s and recently upgraded in 2010. The Farnsworth Park sign reads, “Dedicated to the Children of Soldotna.” Visit the park and you'll see that childhood imagination and energy were guiding stars in the park's design.

Benches around the grassy perimeter and near the park's center provide adults with eagle-eye posts from which to view all the swinging, sliding, climbing and even imaginary sailing on the park's big boat. Landscaped areas come in handy for little legs that need to run and also work nicely for on-the-ground picnics. And what's a park for kids without bathrooms and water fountains? A pavilion with picnic tables offers shade against Alaska's long sunlit days or shelter from unexpected changes in weather.
