This is a huge 4000 acre forest park with practically all the Alaskan wilderness experienced packed into it.

Far North Bicentennial Park Reviews & Ratings
what a fantastic park inside anchorage.. its multipurpose use as a ball field and trail park is super nice, and the trails are lovely and numerous. one can get really deep into the forest if they select the right trails...
We have had the privilege to watch our daughter play baseball here for the last four years. Starting with t-ball. We love the baseball fields. They are always clean, very well kept grass, base lines, bases, bleachers, everything. There is a great group of people behind the scenes making sure this place continues to grow and succeed. I love the feeling of safety it brings over me. There is one way in and everyone knows everyone. It’s easy to let your kid be a kid here , and I appreciate that more than anything.
Not sure why google says Bicentennial Park, maybe they are all connected by the trail system. I spent a lovely time at Abbott Loop Community Park off of Elmore with some friends. We ate bbq, and played games on the lawn. The space is huge so even though we took up a lot of it playing badminton, bocce, and softball, as well as the kids running around with soccer balls and such, there was still room for other visitors to play with their kids and dogs. Really a great place to spend the day or start off on a hike. The parking lot is huge and they have restrooms
Awesome trail system! Connects to Hillside, Prospect Heights, and Flattop too! Could go all the way to Indian if you wanted to!
The trails are a lot of fun. Bring bear spray, we smelled a bear and turned back. A good place to walk the dogs. We forgot the mosquito spray and needed it.
