A mix of children's play area and heritage museum. Doesn't open until noon, but a pleasant place to stroll for an hour or two with stores and museums in rescued heritage buildings. Diorama inside the sternwheeler has amazing attention to detail, and the staff all friendly and helpful.

Food was horrible. McDonald's could have provided better food. All the selections appears to have been factory cooked and thawed for service. If we had started our trip here we would have immediately gone back home. This place has no business serving native Alaska food. It does a disservice to all the men and women who labored to catch and... More

See the huge stern wheeler, visit the Aviation Museum, ride the historic steam engine and visit down town shops and play a round of AK mini golf. The arks also has a great play ground for kids, and adults alike with equipment and picnic pavilions.

We came to enjoy the Salmon Bake one time and the Palace Theatre the next. There seems to be everything here to keep one coming back. Sternwheeler for Rivers (STR) Nenana has Roman Numerals on the bow shows that she needs less than 4 feet of water to float or move cargo. They used the water cannons to dig a... More

The place has enough things to see and do to spend an entire day. First, there is no admission fee, but there are fees for some specific items such as the train ride (a must first thing to do to get the lay of the land - we rode it twice), a mining museum, food of course, airplane museum, and...

We saw Pioneer Park recommended in our hotel room binder so decided to check it out. This park had no admission fee. The parking was plentiful. There were gorgeous flowers planted at the entrance and thought the park. There was the train car Warren Harding rode in to drive the golden spike on the Alaskan railway. They took an amalgamation...

There is no park admission, but make sure you get the "all you can eat" Salmon Bake where they have the best salmon you have ever tasted. Don't waste you stomach space on the prime rib. It is good, but you can get this anywhere. The salmon is outstanding. The rest of the park is interesting and worth the time.... More

This has a bit of something for everyone. Interesting historical information as well as fun for kids and shopping. Especially good for families! :)

This park is kind of neat. There's no admission charge so it's a great place to take an afternoon walk. My husband and I didn't have kids with us on our trip but we still enjoyed walking around. The shops, historical buildings, and snack food are just enough. Not over the top. If you have kids that need to exert... More
