Russian Jack Springs Park is a public park located in Anchorage, Alaska, managed by the Anchorage Park Foundation. The park is named for Jacob "Russian Jack" Marunenko. The park comprises two quarter-sections, minus road rights-of-way, covering approximately 300 acres (120 ha). DeBarr Road, a major east-west arterial road in Anchorage, bisects the park.
The land for the park was transferred to the municipality of Anchorage by the Bureau of Land Management in 1948 and it was initially used as a minimum security prison farm.
It was the site of four murders by Charles L. Meach in 1982. Three years later, three elderly people were murdered by a teenaged couple in a secluded residential neighborhood approximately 250 feet (76 m) south of the park's border.
The park's playground was renovated in 2013.
