A short walk to the viewing platform where you can enjoy a scenic view of the Knik Arm. On a clear day you can see Denali.

On the edge of downtown, off 3rd street. This is basically a wooden viewing platform and a statue. I went around 6am because it was very close and I needed something to do before catching my train. It has some old looking graffiti they need...More

This is a very fitting statue to a wonderful and talented man, Captain Cook. The views from this wooden pavilion type park are beautiful and so well thought out. A pity about the graffiti and rubbish left around such a historical place.

The Cook monument is a great place to take in views of Cook Inlet and Mt Susitna... and maybe... if you time it right... views of Cook Inlet Belugas swimming by. Its also a fantastic place for sunset photos especially in the spring and fall.

Small but just great! It is a deck that shows the mountain range and the bay area from downtown with easy access.

There's not a whole lot here, but the view of Cook Inlet is very nice. It was the perfect walk with the kids after a late arrival. With the long flight and the late sun, we didn't want to go straight to bed, so this...More

From this park, you can take in the breathtaking views of the Talkeetnas and the snow-covered Alaskan range. The bronze Captain Cook Monument looks out to sea toward the route he used when he explored Cook Inlet in 1778 aboard the HMS Resolution.

We visited this park several times in our walks about Anchorage. On our last visit, the skies were clear and we could see the very tip of Mt. Denali. This was especially important to me because we had ridden the train down from Fairbanks and...More
