“Brillant for a walk”
Reviewed 17 July 2013 via mobile

We walked down from the end of 5th ave to Westchester Lagoon on a warm saturday. The lagoon was well populated by a range of waterbirds. Great scaup, terns, gull, and several species of waterfowl were all there and able to be viewed with ease. A great free walk

“Placid Retreat of Westchester Lagoon”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

Visitors and Alaska residents can each enjoy this beautiful lagoon and view near downtown Anchorage. If you like to walk it is easy to access from any downtown hotel. Get directions from the concierge or head down L street and hang a right on West 15th street til it runs out, you are there. If you grab something to eat at New Sagaya as you pass this wonderful store you will have a nice picnic and a five star view of the Chugach range reflected in the lagoon. Take the coastal trail out to the airport or back to downtown and watch for wildlife all along the way.

“Beautiful Walk”
Reviewed 16 October 2012

We love this loop - about a mile - uphill and down in the fresh air - it's just right, plus we always see interesting bird or animal activity.
