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

I wanted to stop by here just for the sake of checking out the history of the earthquake. The park trail crosses the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail so watch out for cyclers as your crossing over the TNCT. There are signs and information placards that show how much the area changed after the earthquake. It's a great little stop. My... More

The force of the earthquake boggles the mind when you visit this place and see what it looked like prior to the BIG QUAKE!

This attraction is located along the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail and can be accessed by bike or a long walk from the start. It has information boards to explain and sow you what really happened. There are some banches to sit to relax.

This park was a perfect place for us to pass time while waiting for flights (had a vehicle). Clean, informative, great interpretive signs, art, nature. Seems a popular place so you feel safe. Lots more to it that we got to I'm sure.
