A ranger suggested we check out this little park. Not your typical green grass and trees park but worth the visit. There's a series of wooden walkways down the bluff and close to the water (when the tide is in). But I think people go there for the views of the mountain ranges. You can see Mt. McKinley from there... More

The park is well located in downtown Anchorage and its perfect to have a nice view of the mountains that sorround the city.

Nice view, with a statue and a decent map of the vista. My boy liked running down the wooden walkways, though they weren't the cleanest.

If you are expecting a traditional park with trees, shrubbery and grass, this may not be what you're looking for. Resolution Park is a multi-level set of wooden observation decks, with the Captain James Cook monument at the top, looking out over the Cook Inlet. The view was nice... perhaps it can be spectacular at times (most likely sunset), but... More

We stopped by since we were at Snow City Cafe just up the corner, but it was worth a look. You can see across the inlet. Walk down the ramps and check out the lower viewing areas too.

We visited Anchorage in Mar 2014 and were lucky enough to have sunny days. Captain Cook's monument is one of the places within walking distance from downtown. You can see Mt. McKinley (or as locals refer 'Denali') from this point. It's beautiful and picturesque scenery. It also offers views of cook inlet.

I went here during a morning walk and saw Mt McKinley before the clouds moved in. Ok, I didn't see the top because the clouds already covered the top but nevertheless it was a nice view. the snow covered volcanic mountains across Cook Inlet also looked good. It was interesting seeing another statue of Captain Cook outside of Hawaii but... More

The sun sets over one part or another of the Alaska Range. On a clear evening, you can see the entire range, including Denali!

We walked down to this area from downtown to see how far out the tide had gone. It is just amazing the difference between high and low tide. Well worth the visit--and it's free!

Nice little park overlooking Prince William Sound. I'm sure you could see whales if you were there long enough. Went on the Solstice to watch the sun go down, well sort of, the sky got pretty colors, never did really go down. Left at 11:30 p.m.
