A small park with a view of Cook Inlet. A nice place to see the city and get a view of the coast. Park consists of a deck, sculpture and viewpoint.

We were here for the 4th of July celebration and it was a beautiful area. It can get windy so I would suggest taking a jacket. We were there in July but it was overcast so it was a little chilly. Otherwise it's a beautiful place to visit.

This is a nice viewing platform downtown, just about 2 blocks from the popular Snow City Cafe. There is street and parking lot parking nearby. Great views of the Cook Inlet and a statute of Capt. Cook. Best to come day or night with others, as there may be less desirable activity occurring in some of the more hidden nooks... More

We stopped by Resolution Park and enjoyed seeing the statue of Captain Cook and reading the plaques with information about his voyage. Unfortunately the morning in August that we were there was drizzly and overcast. We could see the Cook Inlet below, and some hazy land in the distance, but not much else. We were glad to get a little... More

If you are really lucky and catch a clear day, you can see Mt. Denali from this viewpoint park. Statue of Captain Cook, a British explorer of the west coast.

easily found , this monument pays tribute to captain Cook. This is small park at the end of downtown Anchorage . It is safe although I suspect some drug addicts visit the place. A security guard was on site though
