  • Informative signs, a few short trails, park also connects to the coastal trail. Very cool park giving great information about the good Friday earthquake, the results from it, and science behind it.
  • This park is a classic. Its located along the Tony Knowles Coastal trail, surrounded by trees and only a few feet away from breath taking views of cook inlet, taking multiple photos will be hard to resist. If you're visiting Anchorage this is a must see historical landmark.
  • The interesting park to thinking about the earthquake! And view point on the Anchorage. Some information from the history. It is the place which combine the history and the nature, sports activity and scientific facts.
  • 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.
