We went here to check out the park and to eat lunch. We walked down a paved path to an open area along the waterfront. They have a few tables so eating food is pretty easy. I believe the area is connected to other parts of the city via a trail system. They had some nice displays that told about... More

Took my young kid out here before a flight. Loved watching the bicyclist ride by and seeing everyone running. Watched people play in the mud digging for something. Was a pretty walk.

Easily accessible just past the Turnagain neighborhood, by taking Northern Lights Rd. at Minnesota Drive (corner of Northern Lights Center). Large dirt parking lot. Watch out for moose, often see them on this drive. Nice photo guide to help you identify points of interest. Access to the coastal trail as well.

It's hard to believe this park is down the st. from almost anywhere in Anchorage. The trails are paved & easy to ride or walk on. If your up to it you can walk down to the beach. We ended up gng through the frisbee golf course. Fortunately our detour led us to a moose and a beautiful sunset that... More

The greatest earthquake in recorded history occurred on the spot where you are standing. Informative signs along a walking trail explain what happened and the signs you can look for to see remnants of the original damage. Beautiful birds and other wildlife are here to be seen, and there are nice paved walking paths suitable for any weather condition. There... More

Very interesting park with signs telling of the big 1964 earthquake that I knew nothing about until visiting here.

Tar paths, lots of bikes and joggers easy access and mostly flat terrain. Paths connect to many miles of trails.
