We walked into this area after walking the fishing boardwalks along the river. A very nice playground that is huge. If you are familiar with Leathers Playgrounds, then you know this is quality kids entertainment. Very clean bathrooms are close by.

A lovely setting along the Kenai River. Go on Wednesday when the park hosts the Farmers Market. Wonderful tents offering tons of Alaskan local goods. The food tents are a plenty. I can vouch for Yo Tacos Alaska. It was mouthwatering.

The park includes a 2300-foot boardwalk right on the Kenai River. Views are spectacular. About a dozen short stairs to the water provide access to fishing and better views. Benches along the way give visitors that chance to just "veg." At one end, there is...More
