  • A nice park, the sort of which Anchorage is known for. Plenty of hiking trails and views. Of course many interpretational signs and visual aids to explain the good Friday quake. Not the most beautiful park in Anchorage but certainly worth the visit. Nearly any time I have guests in Anchorage we visit.
  • A little park explaining what happened during the big earthquake and you can also see how the earth moved. Not by some photos but looking at the actual landscape after the earthquake. Just cool.
  • A really nice walk here with friends, even in the dead of winter. There is a large system of trails to take advantage of. There is interesting signage around describing the previous landscape before the quakes jumbled the area up. The park connects to the coastal trail so is accessible in multiple ways; such as by car, bike, or hike. We also have seen moose on several occasions in the general area of this park. Not too challenging of a stroll.
  • neat park. you can see the fault line here from ghe big earthquake that hit alaska in the 60's.
  • Good park for hiking. Make sure you know what trail you're on, because I mindlessly wandered onto a separate trail which went from the park to Anchorage. Obviously a fault of my own, but there wasn't any signage for this until 1 mile up the trail. Whoops!
