The 1964 earthquake that struck south-central Alaska, devastating Anchorage, was the strongest over recorded in North America—9.2 on the Richter scale. This park along the Cook Inlet shoreline just north of the airport exhibits the physical effects, in the form of large, undulating folds in the ground. Displays explain what was here: an upscale residential area whose homes were demolished as the earth opened up into 30-foot crevasses. The Tony Knowles trail passes through the park.
