I love Gold Creek from here. You can just sit and enjoy or you can hike, play tennis or picnic. When I was a kid this was where the swimming pool was for swimming lessons...... brrrrr.

Cope Park at one time was an epicenter of activity, sports, and family oriented uses. Today well maintained within parameters. Trees have overgrown much of the area, leaving a dark algae on decomposing wood. Dark shadowy areas permit excessive use by indigents for partying, and hobo living. Watch where you step. A trail to homeless dwellings up the canyon, travels... More

We'd wanted to get out and get some exercise while in Juneau and decided to go check out the Cemetery Trail. We stumbled across this park as we headed back to Downtown. In fact, it was a black bear racing across the street that sort of led us to it. It's not very big, but the weather was dry and... More

Kind of dark because its down in a ravine but it has a nice trail, tennis courts, a big very cold natural pool for cooling off in the summer, great to hear the rushing water as you stroll along

The setting is quite nice, resting within a bowl, surrounded by trees, with Gold creek flowing by. Thursday nights in the summer are when Beer ball is held - which is great fun for all. In the winter you may want to keep your' eyes open to avoid local Drunks who sometimes use the shelters there to Drink.

Hiking very close to downtown Juneau. Waterfalls, crystal ponds, and the most breathable air in America. Trail runs from the top of Mount Roberts all the way through some old mining trails, wooden bridges and walkways down to Cope Park on the Northwest side of the city. Can get into areas that require some steep climbing. My dogs love this... More

Anyway, I don't know its just a small, kind of dirty local park. There's a nice little walk off to the side that goes behind cope park to the flume (river that turns into artificial river). Theres some hobos that live around the park. Bottom line: an okay local park to have picnics or for youngsters to smoke at, but... More
