If you see people swimming outdoors in Anchorage, chances are it is at Goose Lake. Despite being in a central city location, it is filled with thick fir trees circling it and has an area roped off for young swimmers. In winter, there is a maintained ice skating area for public use. Anchorage is the largest city in North America to have nesting loons within its limits, and this lake is a nesting favorite. There are rest area facilities onsite.
