“Best place to hang out on a windy day!”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

What is great about this park??? Free, plentiful parking, accesible and welcoming to all. Tons of families picnicking, great frolfing, MILES of trails and our favorite - kite flying. There are restrooms, drinking fountains and plenty of places to spread out a blanket. If it is early summer, bring a tarp to put under the blanket! And stop at the Tastee Freeze on the way home!

“Mother Nature next to the airport!”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

We visited Kincaid Park on a VERY cold, but sunny day. We were promised by a local friend that moose sightings were abundant there! Unfortunately, we did not see one. However, there were many people cross-country skiing, sledding, and enjoying the outdoors. We took a walk along a wonderfully groomed path and enjoyed the beautiful scenery as the sun began setting in the late afternoon. Kincaid Park is a beautiful spot along the water and right in Anchorage.

“If you want to see moose in the summer, this is the park for you!”
Reviewed 9 December 2011

Not only is there beautiful scenery and nice, wide walking trails but, in the spring and summer, you are very likely to spot moose near or on the trail. It is on the south end of the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail and you have great views of Cook Inlet!

WARNING: Pleae respect the wildlife and know how to behave around moose, especially a cow and her calf. DO NOT get between them, do not get close to them. If they are on the trail, wait for them to leave before approaching. These are beautiful creatures but they are wild and they will not hesitate to defend their young.
