  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Beautiful park that connects to the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. Educational plaques describe the 1969 Good Friday Earthquake and it's consequences.
  • Great place to run in the Spring or cross country ski in the winter. Paths are wide enough for sharing with bikes. You can explore the frozen ocean in the winter.
  • Love this spot on the coastal trail. Decent sized parking lot and access to both paved and unpaved trails. Good place to see moose at dusk. Evidence of historic earthquake is easy to see. On a clear day, there is good views of mountains (including Denali) and Anchorage. At low tide you can walk along the beach. Just be careful around the mud flats, they are dangerous.
