“Proud & maybe Predjudice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

I happen to live in Anchorage, have lived in Fairbanks and Dillingham Alaska, multiple Wisconsin and even short time Ontario n Washington State. You can tell the complainers are City Slickers when they complain about skeeters although we do consider it the state bird. even though Anchroage is a city competitive with any its size lower 48, it is the ONLY one of its kind in Alaska that truly has some culture and public amenities-sorry Fairbanks, but the point is its SURROUNDED by RAW nature even where random un-road connected towns exist outside of Anchorage bowl. You should ALWAYS be aware that this is the gateway to uncivilization as much as you can ever see and plan to see nature it all its realities uncaring of your perceptions of it. Try the boy scout motto: Be prepared. TOURISTS should consider that this park is FREE TO YOU, paid for by the citizens of this town. I LOVE when Im a tourist and something is FREE to me.Tthe point is ENJOY it, bring your bug spray and rain jacket and have your camera ready because you cant plan many of the Alaskan experiences and you might not have to pay for them. Thats why my family will stay here. (that and everything else is so expensive we cant afford to save ahahah jk) But for best enjoyment get an Rv and drive up from Homer to Fairbanks and you will get an idea.

“Come prepared for mosquitos”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

We had expected more than a few signs in an outdoor park. While we would have liked to have stayed longer for a walk, the mosquitos were really persistent. If you come prepared for an outdoor walk, the park has a nice path and views of water--but watch out for the bicycles who zoom by. If you want to learn about the '64 earthquake, go to the Alaska Federal building and watch the video. It was very informative.

“Not sure”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

I wouldn't bother going just to see this. If you're on the coastal trail and want to stop by for 5-10 min. Sure. Maybe climb the monument and take a picture. Or consider just biking on past.

“A nice park to visit and learn facts about Alaska's earthquake history.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

We took the short walk in the park and read the informative boards. We didn't expect much but had a great time seeing first hand how the earthquakes had taken part of the coast line. Saw some wildlife and signs in the area, deffinately was not a waste of time.
