We enjoyed this Park while RVing in the area. The nightly live show is great entertainment! We rented bikes & canoes at Canoe Alaska to explore the Chena River & Downtown Fairbanks. Great day!

We stopped by the Park after Labor Day so most all was closed. The Park was clean and provided a nice walk. The museum was open for a small donation. It was nice, much better than I expected.
