We visited Kincaid Park and it has beautiful views. Saw a moose but was unable to get a picture. Did see Mount McKinley and snow capped mountains. Would highly recommend a visit to the park

Absolutely no public transport can get you there. What a waste! We would have loved to hike through the park but not having a car made it completely unattainable. Anchorage - have a bus that can drop hikers off so they can enjoy this wonderful green space.

bicycled the coastal trail and ended up here. Saw moose and beautiful vistas. A great park to visit for picknicking, walking, bicycling or look for wildlife

We walked for more than 2 hrs before having to board a plane for home that evening and it was so nice and the Wenatchee was sunny and warm. Highly recommend the park and surrounding area.

The coastal trail cannot be beat. You can ride from downtown Anchorage along the coast all the way to Kincaid. I have seen large groups of whales following the beach with the tide. Much more common are the moose encounters. You have to pay attention and use common sense. But the views to Fire Island and the city are great.... More

You get a post-card view of downtown Anchorage. Not the swings and slide type of park for children, but a nice place to view nature.

This park is on a former Nike Missile site. There are many well maintained biking and walking trails with beautiful vistas in some areas. We visited serval mornings and early evenings. We were lucky enough to see two bull moose and two cows. This is a lovely facility owned by the city of Anchorage, well worth a visit.

Lovely place for a wedding in their community room, we had a nice picnic on the hill overlooking the water. Watched the planes going out from the airport, lots of biking trails and a nice disc golf course. Fun for anyone! Huge park!

The park is very nice. We went there 3 times while in Anchorage and saw moose 2 out of the three times. Definitely a place to stop if you are in the area.

Our first full day in Alaska we started our morning with a jog through Kincaid Park, hoping to see some moose but at least figured we'd get a good workout in. We arrived around 7:30am which was before the park opened but there's a parking lot right outside of the gate. We did a 30 minute run along a fairly... More
