  • We appreciated this park, and would recommend it to other visitors. Demonstrates the extent of the damage generated by 1964 earthquake.  more »
  • This has very cool history of the 1964 earthquake but is July the mosquitoes can be monstrous! It is along the Costal Trailway.  more »
  • Although this was interesting, it was not earthshaking. Remember bug spray to walk through the park, they were eager to bite and everywhere.  more »

  • What a beautiful paved path park! Paved pathways go throughout but off path trails are also throughout the park. It's neat to read the informational sign posts about the earthquake of '64. We we're hoping there would be a grassy open area to picnic but the most we found were benches, which had a fantastic view. Also, make sure you use a bathroom before you go! No toilets or port a potties that we saw.
  • Nice walking trail. On very clear days you have a chance of seeing Denali! Have seen bear and moose here. Bring bug spray, lots of mosquitoes.
  • I love the great trails and the connectivity to the Coastal Trail. The interpretive signs help to guide you in understanding the '64 quake.
  • Amazing view of the planes taking off along with the sunset if you go at the golden hour. Great for a picnic date.
  • Excellent place to see if you're a tourist. A view of the damage the 1964 earthquake did to this part of town, near the cook inlet. Also you can view the airport, landings and departures of aircraft on the runway.
