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.

Rent a bike from downtown Anchorage and ride to Kincaid. It is beautiful. And the park is a great place to take a break and eat your lunch and just hang out.

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

If you want to see moose other than going to a zoo, Kincaid Park is a place you want to visit. Go there in early morning or late afternoon. Be careful and keep distance from the moose! They can hurt you as bad as bears or worse per a national park ranger.

Kincaid is a beautiful park with numerous trails for walking or riding a bike. There are excellent views of cook inlet, denali and fire island. The trails are well groomed and there are numerous flowers, some benches. Bears and moose can be found at times, though we only saw moose on our entry. If you have a frisbee there is... More

The trails and paths have some fantastic scenery which is not to be missed ! Our daughter took on one of the "off- the-beaten-path" trails and they were a wonderful scenic surprise.

Great place to hike. Excellent views of Cook Inlet. Could do some picnicking and sunning. Hard to figure where headquarters is. Private group had rented main building so hard to tell where to go without interfering with party. Worth a visit if you have some extra time. More a locals place then for visitors to Anchorage.

Decent size area to bike, walk, or play some frisbee golf. There is also quite a bit of wildlife to see in this area

If you are at the park when the Chalet is open then take a look at History notebook that tells the history of the park when it was part of the rocket defense system. Then take a walk past all the missile huts and walk on the cement pads where the tracks for the missiles lead into the storage area.... More
