We were there in the afternoon in a weekday in early June, not many people there. We enjoyed strolling around the village and going in the stern wheeler. Quite a few things that might attract children, but we were two senior citizens so didn't spend as much time there as others might.

Really enjoyed this little park--lots of shopping, an interesting little museum, had some good souvlaki--& easy to get to on the local bus route! Really enjoyed our talk with the owner of "Just Originals"--& his Great Dane Charlie was absolutely adorable! :)

I feel bad saying it, but this was a bit cheesy and touristy for me. A fellow traveler recommended it since it was free, but I just felt like it was a bit myrtle beach ish for me. Its nice I guess if you have some time to kill with children. The food was good-I'll say that.

I wasn't sure about this place at first and the hours are sometimes a bit off from when people are there, but we were able to get in and some shops, eateries and the large boat museum in the middle were indeed open. Make sure you check local listings for the theatre showtimes and such. Flowers were beautiful here too.

The salmon bake was a disappointment for us. The Salmon was good but the whole thing was pretty hokey. The show could have been a lot better.

Fun place, lots of interesting vendors and yummy food. Putt putt golf and carousel around playgrounds makes for a nice time. Don't forget to ride the train around the park, it's inexpensive and fun.

I have attended classes, bazaars, weddings, art openings, and picnics at Pioneer Park. In the summer when our granddaughters come up from Anchorage, we go every day that it doesn't rain. the girls love the carousel, the train, and riding their bikes around the park. I feel this is a clean and safe place for children, although I still always... More
