Pioneer Park - Review

Built on the edge of the Chena River, this park is everything that a tourist trap should be. It was built-in 1967, on the hundredth year anniversary of Alaska's purchase from Russia. Until 2001, it was known as Alaskaland. Today, filled with old buildings, recreated railways, and other charming attractions, the park is a mix of a natural retreat and a theme park. Its attractions are as follows:

  • The RV campsite
  • The Pioneer Park playground - It has an animal train. Check out of a 100 year old carousel.
  • Alaska salmon bake - A restaurant
  • Alaska Centennial Center for the Arts - It may look like a birthday cake That is actually an excellent temporary art exhibition Hall
  • Alaska Outdoor Rentals & Guides - This is the place to get your adventure gear be it cycling, hunting or kayaking
  • Mini-Golf Fairbanks - 36 Holdsworth of fun
  • Mining Valley - Recreated exhibit of gold mining equipment and operations

  • We love taking our family to Pioneer park. Great place with plenty of things to do with the family. Local artists and shops available and offer an opportunity to learn about the history of the surrounding area. The train is a great attraction and cheap for the whole family to ride. Food is available as well as restrooms, playground equipment, and the salmon bake. A must visit place in Fairbanks.

  • Wasn't open yet, but walked around looks like it would be fun. It opens this coming Saturday Memorial day weekend. I did make it on Saturday, and what a blast we had. So many cute little shops to visit, rides, places to eat. This place has two really nice museums inside the park. We visited them both. We had a great time!

  • Great place to see as a newcomer or a tourist. Lots of history here and a great place for kids to play. My son loves the trains here. The restaurants inside are good in most places. The salmon bake is delicious but expect a hefty bill.

  • Such a cool place not only do they have places for RVs to park but there is a huge area inside the park where they have a carousel they have shops and all the shops are in Old buildings that used to be the original buildings in Fairbanks Alaska. Museums Air Show Duck Pond restaurants. A very awesome place. By the way the Greek food was delicious.

  • Every city should have something like this, something for everyone with too many aspects to list. A must go, it's free to get in and I highly recommend the all you can eat buffet. The train ride was great too, don't forget to scream in the tunnel!
