Great place to stretch your legs and get a bit of a history lesson as well! You can hike, bike, jog, or walk at your own pace. Beautiful views!

Nice Walk
Nov 2020
This is a cool spot to take a walk. I was here on a Saturday morning in November and it wasn't too crowded. The parking lot has a good number of spaces. On that end you're right by the airport so you can get some good views of the planes taking off overhead. The main spot offers a sculpture in memory of the earthquake that sank this area some 15 feet lower. There are placards around explaining what had happened here. It's interesting. But really the main draw here are the views. You get some great ones of Mt Susitna and downtown Anchorage. From there you can continue on to the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail which leads you along the coast and I didn't go all the way but I'm pretty sure you can take it into downtown. Nice place to visit.

Interesting But Not Excition
Jul 2020
Go to read about the 1964 earthquake. Years ago you could actually see how the land tilted and sank, The former housing area is now overgrown with trees and brush and you have to use your imagination to picture what it looked like.

Nice place to walk and view wildlife.

There were lots of moose in this area. Nice place to walk and view the changes in the coastline from the earthquake as well as read about the history of it. Would be helpful if they added a restroom/outhouse nearby.

Interesting to learn about the quake
Jun 2020
We did not get to enjoy the beautiful views here as it was foggy and rainy. That said, we were still glad to have made this stop and learned about the 1964 earthquake and how it impacted the state. There are plenty of places to explore if you have the time. If you don't, spend 30 minutes learning about the quake and, weather permitting, enjoying the views.

Interesting for geology nerds.

Mainly its a park with several bike/walking paths. If you like geology and, or, history, this will be a real treat.seeing how a massive earthquake can change the land.

Earthquake Park visit
Nov 2019
We made the visit to Earthquake Park to learn more about the most recent earthquake. Not a lot to see but a lot to read about with good illustrations on boards along the walkways.
