The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) is interested in improving and expanding facilities at the Knik River Access Point to include trailered and non-trailered parking, public restrooms, picnic shelter, elevated boardwalk, informational signage, and the construction of a Gold Star Families Memorial Monument. The objectives addressed by the design were to:
- Develop infrastructure at the site to meet user demands and expectations.
- Encourage the use of the site from motorists traveling along the adjacent Glenn Highway.
- Expand the use of the site beyond purely recreational purposes through the Gold Star Families Memorial Monument.
