Located on Sandy Beach Loop Road and 1.6 miles from downtown, this park marks a spot historically important to Alaska Natives. Wooden stakes and rocks in a “V” shape are remains of a 2,000-year-old fish trap that can be spotted in the mud flats during low tides. In addition, petroglyphs can be left of the park’s picnic area, at the edge of the lagoon. Ask for directions at the Chamber of Commerce or Forest Service visitors centers in town. The park offers three enclosed picnic shelters that can be rented, restrooms and running water. The City Creek Trail, a one-hour hike, begins at the park’s south end.
