Earthquake Park is located on the northwestern end of Anchorage on the Tony Knowles Costal Trail, where huge tracts of land slid into Cook Inlet during the 1964 Good Friday earthquake. The park was created as a memorial and remains mostly in its natural state with several paths leading down into the landslide areas, enabling visitors to see the unusual landscape the earthquake created. The park features a series of interpretive signs, sculptures, and before-and-after photos that tell the story of the earthquake and the area’s geology and wildlife.
