Earthquake Park - Review

Before the 1964 earthquake this place used to be known as the Turnagain Heights. The incredible power of the the 9.2 quake sent and entire neighborhood crumbling into the ocean. Nothing could be built upon the unstable clay bluffs any more, so the area was turned into a commemorative park. If you want to see the marks left behind by the quake, go the to the north of the park and look for the sharp break in the land, and the rippled hills. It is a good place to come for a stroll or a cycle. Bring a picnic. The Tony Knowles Coastal Trail begins at this park. If you want a playground, head to the nearby Lyn Ary Park.

Earthquake Park, Anchorage Reviews

  • What a beautiful paved path park! Paved pathways go throughout but off path trails are also throughout the park. It's neat to read the informational sign posts about the earthquake of '64. We we're hoping there would be a grassy open area to picnic but the most we found were benches, which had a fantastic view. Also, make sure you use a bathroom before you go! No toilets or port a potties that we saw.

  • On foot was not a great experience. Best done on a bike. Lots of mosquitoes, even for Alaska.

  • It's quiet here when we visited last week. Nice for a walk and learn about the history of this park. We stopped here for about 15 minutes.

  • More appropriate for locals. Don't forget to apply biug spray before going there.

  • Beautiful here, you have the option the walk, run, bike. Very popular during the summer and you can see some beautiful sunsets from here. You'll get a nice view of downtown Anchorage, and its also a popular photography spoy
