Visited in December with friends for Global Fat Bike Day and test rides. In the winter the lagoon is a great place for skating, cross country skiing, and yes fat biking. You can also access the coastal trail nearby.

Recommended by my b&b, very pleasant nice walk along lagoon and under bridge to ocean where the mountains looked pinkish in the Alaskan light.

This is the location I pick up the Coastal Trail when heading out on a run. Beautiful views, opportunities to see a variety of birds species and salmon, this lagoon is a beautiful place for a picnic, start your walk/run or come to skate during the winter. This area also has a great playground for kids.

This is one of the prettiest places in Anchorage to walk. About 1mile from downtown. Spectacular views at sunset and sunrise

This somewhat manicured spot has a great variety of birds that are within easy photographic range. The Knowles Trail passes alongside the water way so be careful.

Went there for my morning run. I was staying at an Airbnb close by. Great scenery on the morning with fog and ducks flying by.

Westchester Lagoon is in Margaret Eagan Sullivan Park, a lovely city park on the coast of Cook Inlet where the Tony Knowles Trail and the Chester Creek Trails intersect. A playground, disc golf, benches, food vendors and portable toilets are available. The large lagoon attracts a variety of waterfowl. Bus stop nearby at Spenard Rd. and W. 19th Ave.

Located on the edge of downtown and mid-town, this park provides a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city

Seen on a trolley tour, love looking at birdlife and this had plenty - unsure of variety. Beautiful outlook, plenty of parking, serene place near the highway.

Easy access, easy walking but mind the joggers and cyclists. Close views of waders, grebes and Bald Eagles.

Thank E Paul R
