Scenic spot with Captain Cook's statue in place. In good weather, a great view out over the water to the mountains in the distance.

OK park with some nice views if the weather cooperates. A statue of Captain Cook marks the spot. Not much going on here but hey if you are in the area I suppose it's worth a short visit.

Not very interesting! Just ok to walk around and see some locals and tourists walking or biking! They could improve the park by making it more family friendly and having better care of nature! Perhaps adding some beauty to it.

I stopped by Resolution Park as part of a walking tour of downtown Anchorage. It has a nice overlook area, but it's not a park where you would recreate or picnic in. Some educational material, but not sure it would entertain kids.

I saw this park as a result of a walking tour. It was an easy walk from downtown. Some interpretive signs and you do see the statue, but not a recreational park, as such. Still, worth a trip if you have the time.

Short walk from the city. Nice monument and information re Captain Cook. Great views of water and on a clear day of mountains. We were lucky and could even see Denali from Anchorage during our stay.

A nice place to visit with good view but not uniquely better than other spots around Anchorage so hard to rate it much above average.
