We visited Earthquake Park after an Alaskan cruise. We had several hours in Anchorage before our flight and this was one of the places we wanted to see. There was a major earthquake in 1964 and at this park you can see where the landscape...More

You don't really grasp how devastating the 1964 earthquake was until you see how dramatically the land dropped off. A walk through this park really gives you a feel for how powerful a force was unleashed upon Anchorage.

It is a peaceful place to visit and to read all the information available on boards explain what happened and when.

Enjoyed a walk along the path and learning a bit about the history from the informational stations. Not really highly recommended, though. Could just be me but it was a basic walk near the water.

This was a stop on my trolley tour. I didn’t walk through the park but it looked very interesting. Our tour guide gave a first hand account of the event, very educational.

The displays tell the amazing story of the earthquake, but your own eyes can observe the landscape and see how it was changed in an instant. Now, the park is right on the water with bikers, runners...and bears, in our case. A very pretty place...More

Nice paved trail (accessible) with signs along the walk, at the end is an interesting display about the huge 1964 earthquake and tsunami that followed. Imagine a 40 ft wave that's covered in oil and on FIRE! swooshing into town.
