Lots of history here, with pioneer homes gathered at this location and furnished with period pieces. I also had a great lunch while there, stopping by a panini maker. You can make it a picnic by sitting with your sandwich at a nearby bench.

Lots of little shops and a couple smaller museums. Informative historical buildings. Great Caribbean hut for food - Tasha's. Definitely bring smaller kids here - there's a very nice park set up with play structures and a small putt-putt golf place. Very beautiful flowers.

Haven't been there in years and years, but we used to go every once in awhile for something to do and always enjoyed ourselves. Nothing to get too excited about, but was good for an afternoon.

This free park is next door to the Alaskan Salmon Bake...nice walk after supper. History, old cars, antiques, music, snacks...it was well worth the time to wander around and learn a little more about Fairbanks and Alaska.

What comes to your mind when you think of parks in Alaska? Hiking? Mountains? Bears? Well, Pioneer Park offers none of these. But what it does offer is a glimpse of the past in and around Fairbanks. The cabins, for the most part, are original...More
