One of the main attractions of this park is that it shows clear evidence the major earthquake that occurred in 1964. There is a literal dropoff of land in which a forest is growing at different level than the rest of the forest. Very weird indeed.

This "park" was created during the 1964 Earthquake. An event that changed Anchorage (and Alaska) forever. The landscape is all natural - Mother nature did her best to kick out the humans...she nearly succeeded.

In Anchorage for business? Not much personal time but you're dying for an Alaskan experience? Get over to Earthquake Park early in the morning or at dusk for your best chance at seeing a Moose! Remember though, safety first, so keep your distance!!

One of the biggest earthquakes to hit our continent happened right here. But he wouldn't know it from looking around. It's been turned into a great little bicycling trail with some very nice vistas
