Bojet Wikan Fishermen's Memorial Park

Southeast Alaska

At the southern end of Sing Lee Alley is Bojet Wikan Fishermen’s Memorial Park. This deck-of-a-park is built on pilings over Hammer Slough and features an impressive statue of a fisher that honors all his fellow crew members lost at sea. Also on display is the Valhalla, a replica of a Viking ship that was built in 1976 and purchased by Petersburg two years later.
