Kincaid Park is situated among 1,400 acres of rolling, forested hills and beautiful scenery. Visitors are treated to spectacular views of Mt. Susitna across Cook Inlet; Fire Island; Denali and Mt. Foraker to the north; and (we think) the best sunsets in Anchorage! Many species of wildlife roam free within the park; so look for black and brown bears; moose; bald eagles; and a host of smaller wildlife like snowshoe hares, the occasional river otter, and songbirds.
Anchorage Parks & Recreation manages the Kincaid Outdoor Center, located at the west end of Raspberry Road in Kincaid Park. Here, the public may access restrooms and common areas for day use.
Kincaid Park is fast-becoming a popular venue for sporting events. To date, 25 major events have been held in the park, including: national level competitions for the selection of the U.S. Olympic Teams for Nordic skiing Special Olympics; Alaska Ski for Women, the largest womens-only ski race in the country; the National Masters Nordic Skiing Championships; and the NCAA National Nordic Skiing Championships.
Kincaid's 60 kilometers of interwoven trails, of which nearly 20 kilometers are lighted, play host to four seasons of biking, hiking, biathlon, triathlon, walking, running, and skiing activities and competitions. Additionally, access to the 11-mile Tony Knowles Coastal Trail is within easy reach of the Outdoor Center.
Looking for that unique place to have your company picnic or activity? Consider renting the Kincaid Outdoor Center and the adjacent grounds for picnics, parties, weddings, receptions, barbecues, meetings and sporting events. The Outdoor Center offers comfortable and spacious rooms inside; while outside you find expansive green lawns, a picnic pavilion, and breathtaking flower garden and picturesque lake side sites, to accommodate your special plans.
