Earthquake Park

Park in Anchorage

For decades after the 1964 earthquake, this park remained a barren moonscape revealing the tectonic power that destroyed nearby Turnagain Heights. Today Earthquake Park, at the west end of Northern Lights Blvd on the Knik Arm, is being reclaimed by nature; you’ll have to poke around the bushes to see evidence of tectonic upheaval. A nice stop if you're biking the Coastal Trail.
