From this park, you can take in the breathtaking views of the Talkeetnas and the snow-covered Alaskan range. The bronze Captain Cook Monument looks out to sea toward the route he used when he explored Cook Inlet in 1778 aboard the HMS Resolution.

Park is free. Excellent Overlook of Cook Inlet. Good history lesson to learn about Captain Cook and his travels. Easy to get to from Anchorage downtown.

This little park has a viewing area of the sea and mountains and a ramp that goes down to sea level. It makes a nice destination on a walk. When you can turn your eyes away from the scenery, look at the statue of Captain...More
