  • Wanted to find the sand dunes after reading about them in a travel book. They are next to the motor cross track which was vey loud when in use. Saw a mama moose and calf as we were leaving that area. ...  more »

  • The park is nice, but we went to get on the coastal trail (this is the southern terminus). We walked for 35 minutes downhill and never got to the "coastal" part. Finally we veered off and went down to...  more »

  • Best place to walk this spring and summer with your hairy buddy like my Yellow Lab+Alaska Husky mix Shiloh. Lot of beautiful wild flowers, variety of mushrooms, best plane spotting area and to meet wildlife like bull moose and a black bear. Bring a bear spray with you, good hiking shoes and water. You’ll meet archers, mountain bikers, fellow hikers along the way. Download the map before going. If you want to spot plane up close, take Mize Loop that becomes Arlenes Way, once you’ll see a bright area where plane lands, (no trail visible) but out of the Arlene’s Way, short walk to a clear flat area, you’ll see the Runway 07 Arrival. Be aware of your surrounding area. We’ve seen black bear on our way back to the Stadium Parking area.
  • Awesome, clean park with lots to do! Lots of bike trails with berms and jumps. Or course there are tons without jumps as well, if that is more your style. Good venue for live music. Also a beach
  • We visited this park briefly when we had extra time before heading to the airport, and we were so glad we did! It is a nice sized park with plenty of trails, and we saw multiple moose wondering around in our short hikes. Definitely worth checking out--even if you don't have a ton of time.
  • This is a great place to go outside if you live in Anchorage. There's a huge trail system here and it's all very well maintained. The park accommodates many different types of outdoor people from mountain bikers with it's extensive system of single track to picknick goers with it's beautiful grassy fields, food trucks, and sandy beaches.
  • Lions an tigers an bears Oh my! Don't forget the horseflies! It's the end of the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail and the planet walk that starts downtown. There is a giant cell tower disguised as a pine tree. History is sprawled about this area as a missle base.
