Pioneer Park is a collection of a wide variety of buildings gathered from sites in and around Fairbanks that makes you feel as if you were there in 1900. Board sidewalks add to the charm. There is even a paddle wheel ship that offers an intensive look into river boats of that era that you can explore. The park used... More

The park has something for everyone! From the actual old paddle wheel that plied the local rivers to a copy of Diamond Tooth Gerdy's saloon in Dawson Creek. My wife and I spent a relaxing an interesting evening at the Park.

We visited here on the recommendation of the B&B. This is a free attraction. I would not have been happy if I had to pay. This is an area that does have an old steamboat, small houses etc that are historical and have been moved here. I expected that this would be set up as they were in the day.... More

We really enjoyed this park, home to the Alaskan Bake, as well as many cute little shops. If you have small children there is a great playground area for them. Many places to have a picnic as well. My favorite shop was cabin #8 home to CHARMS BY CJ. She hand made the most beautiful seeded bracelets that I have... More

There's a lot to do here for families and those who want to learn something about the local history. The place consists of original cabins from the early days of Fairbanks. Some are made up with items and in the style that early settlers would have had in their time. Others are used as small shops and food vendors. We... More

We walked through Alaskaland early in the day before all the shops and train were open, but it was still a great place to visit. We loved seeing the old cabins, buildings, steamboat, planes, and train! Plus, the park is available for play time anytime. We definitely want to visit again when we have the time to explore!

I remember visiting Alaskaland as a young teen with my parents and being a bit bored. I was much more impressed with it as an adult! We enjoyed all of the little historical cabins and museums, most of which have free entry or charge only a few dollars. Everyone working there was friendly and helpful, and there are lots of... More

If you need a fun way to spend a weekend with children, start here. Pioneer Park is a central event spot in Fairbanks. On an odd day when parents have a day to spend with their children without something planned, check the Fairbanks event calendar for fun in Pioneer Park. The two playgrounds cater to different ages, so it's less... More

Nice place for families, with museums, and shops and play area. On a sunny day like we visited it looked like a fair. Glad to have visited the place
