We visited Pioneer Park late afternoon on a Saturday; it had been drizzling, cloudy, foggy all day, so the Park was practically deserted. Many of the cabins/stores were closed (it wasn't even 5pm), but it was still nice to walk around. Great idea to move...More

Pioneer Park was ok. Not much going on there when we were there. The stores that were open were nice. The train was neat to see. The museum was good, very informational. Good place to walk around in.

We arrived at 10am and places were just starting to open up. Some of the original buildings from in town have been relocated to the park. Very interesting to see life in Fairbanks in the 1900s

The village with shops in the small log cabins are nice. It is a cute little village of stores with local crafts.

The old SS Nenana sits in the park; a relic of days gone by. Great displays and shops, the pride of the Fairbanks Parks Dept. free RV camping in the huge parking lot, easily accessible.

This place reminds me of the Seattle Center when it was falling apart and badly needed a plan and some funding. The main hall smelled musty and looked dirty. Seemed like a place trying to exploit parents desperately trying to keep their children amused.

It is a good stop to see some traditional houses from Fairbanks. There are as well some small museums (about airplanes and trains).

It’s free to enter the park. There are a number of little stores that you can purchase souvenirs at.

I'm not the owner of the park, and have no answer to this question. This should have been directed to the owner.
