Elderberry Park Audio Guide
This quaint downtown park is named after the delicious fruiting shrub. Enjoy romantic views of Cook Inlet from the swing set and tour Anchorage's oldest standing home, the Oscar Anderson House.
At 1.5 acres, Elderberry Park offers 10 parking spaces, toddler play equipment for 2-5 year olds as well as equipment for 5-12 year olds, benches throughout the park, access to Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, and possible restrooms available from May to September.
In 1976 the Oscar Anderson House was moved to this site to preserve it as a historic site. It was donated to the city by Mrs. Oscar Anderson. Currently, it is a museum with tours available during the summer. If the property is not used as a park it reverts to the Federal Government. The name of the park is for Elderberry bushes.
Elderberry Park is a great spot for a picnic, a great place to get on the Coastal Trail, and, if you're Senator Mark Begich, a great place to get married. Find out how a surprise eclipse almost threw the wedding party into a panic and how you can visit the historic 1915 house where the bride got ready.
