Fodor's Review

The 44-acre park is along the Chena River near downtown Fairbanks, and has several museums, an art gallery, theater, civic center, Native village, large children's playground, miniature-golf course, antique merry-go-round, and restaurants. Owned and operated by the borough, the park also has a re-created gold-rush town with historic buildings saved from urban renewal, log-cabin gift shops, and a narrow-gauge train that circles the park. This is one of the best places in Fairbanks to bring kids and let them run off some energy. No-frills (dry) RV camping is available in the parking lot for $15 a night. Register at the riverboat. No reservation is necessary.
