Pioneer Park is a great visit. It is free and there are a couple of small cheap museums to see here. I love the collection of historic cabins that were brought here, each with a unique story to tell. There is a small train that young children will enjoy riding around the park in. You can't beat the price, so... More

We were staying in a hotel that was within walking distance, so it was a nice afternoon diversion. There wasn't a whole lot to do or see there, but we did have a meal there. We were travelling in a large group, so the variety of places to eat really helped.

We have spent many a summers day or night at this place. Great place for birthday parties or just to bbq and spend time with family and friends. This is one place I will miss as we have moved. You have to visit the little shops and talk to the people that work them. We had the pleasure of watching... More

The Pioneer Park is outside the center of Fairbanks, well worth a visit when you are in Fairbanks. Memorial weekend when we were in the city, was very a busy. The weather was also very hot, so visiting the Park that day you bump too many locals with small children I noticed the park is more a museum and also... More

This park has a lot of history. You will definitely have a better understanding of what Fairbanks and alaska living it's all about. They also have the salmon bake open in the summer and it's delicious. It also has museums, I mean if you come to Fairbanks and didn't go to pioneer park you missed out. I would recommend the...

Pity that it was winter but that also ensured that we were pretty much alone in the park because of the cold weather. Interesting to see all the old cabins of businesses all places in one park and of cuz the really old school carousel!

When we went we had a lot of fun. Especially when we played mini golf. I also liked going to the stores that are there. I also like the ice cream shop that they have.

We're history buffs and long-time Fairbanksans so we were thrilled that these original Fairbanks buildings (church, saloon/hotel and cabins) were moved to a protected place. The Park allows vendors to operate out of some of the cabins during the summer (11a-9p, Memorial Day to Labor Day) so you can also get food and handmade gifts at the same time! The... More
