This is a nice viewing platform downtown, just about 2 blocks from the popular Snow City Cafe. There is street and parking lot parking nearby. Great views of the Cook Inlet and a statute of Capt.

We stopped by Resolution Park and enjoyed seeing the statue of Captain Cook and reading the plaques with information about his voyage.

If you are really lucky and catch a clear day, you can see Mt. Denali from this viewpoint park. Statue of Captain Cook, a British explorer of the west coast.

easily found , this monument pays tribute to captain Cook. This is small park at the end of downtown Anchorage . It is safe although I suspect some drug addicts visit the place. A security guard was on site though

Able to look out and see Mt. Denali, and other great views and saw some beluga whales. Cool view of the "sleeping lady," and nice to take in the beautiful scenery.

During our private city tour we stopped here to see the reindeer but also learned the history. It was amazing that this was a tent city at one time for the railroad.
