Hard to believe this all happen. Can read all about it as you walk to the coast. Need to trim a few shrubs and trees so you can see the water.

This will give you an idea what took place during the earthquake in 1984. It is a nice easy walk for the family.

We saw this as part of our Trolley Tour and were amazed at the results of the big earthquake there. Definitely worth seeing.

Interesting to read the history and it's a community park... Nice and all - along the coastal trail, but not a destination.

We did not have a lot of time to look around but the educational signage was very informative. When you see how large of an area just disappeared it is amazing what the earth can do.

This park shows an area effected by the 1969 Alaskan great earthquake. The park has nice walking trails and informative presentation boards giving the history and effects of this earthquake.

Only had a few minutes to view the damage and the area from the trolley tour of Anchorage. Lots of facts, but this is not a hop on/hop off trolley tour.
