Twin Lakes Closed to Swimming
Twin Lakes is closed to swimming until further notice due to a high fecal bacteria test sample. The Parks and Recreation Department samples the water at Twin Lakes on a weekly basis and the last results came back with a high count. Due to this, it is highly recommended that people and pets do not swim in the lakes.

Do you enjoy Juneau’s trails and have 5 minutes to spare? If you answered yes follow this link to take a quick survey. CBJ, Trail Mix, Alaska State Parks and the USFS are partnering on the Juneau Trails Master Plan – a 20 year document that will define high-priority trails and projects, and will identify and address opportunities and constraints in the Juneau Trails System. By taking this survey you will be letting the planning team know which trails you use the most, what recreational activities you most commonly use the trails for and what trail projects you would like to see in the next 20 years.
Although the front door is closed, the Parks & Recreation office remains open to assist with emails, faxes and phone calls during regular business hours. Give us a call at 907-586-5226 Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The CBJ Parks & Recreation Department is considering changes to the regulations that govern commercial use of parks and recreation facilities. Existing regulations were written nearly 25 years ago, and a number of changes are proposed to provide a better framework to manage commercial use of these public facilities.
