Totem Park is worth checking out. The history of these art pieces along with their current use is very intriguing and informational. A worthwhile stop.

totem poles everywhere. You can walk or you can run. Though I was worried I didn't see any bears. Bald eagles were everywhere!

Whenever I am in Sitka visiting my daughter and her family, I always take a walk through Totem Park at least twice. It is a most beautiful, pristine and serene spot. I follow the paths through the forests and then detour down to one of the beaches to check in the pools for starfish, baby crabs or other creatures. While jogging, running, walking, pushing a baby stroller, one is among history. The Totems tell the story of the people who lived there long ago, and I always can sense their sprits. Totem Park is a special place, a place full of mystery and mystique, beauty and calmness

There were so many totem poles; the art work is just fantastic. It was a nice walk through the parks seeing so many poles plus the trees and water. I highly recommend this.

I used to play in this park as a young girl. Running through Indian River in a Summer. Watching the salmon head up to their spawning ground. Beachcombing. Admiring the Totems. Fascinated by the towering heights of the Sitka Spruce and Hemlock. Check out the displays inside and watch Master carvers and engravers.
