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.

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.

If you go, walk the park with an informed local. It makes the mini experience worth the walk and a few of historical tidbits are very funny.
