A Favorite Spring Time Activity

The parking lot overlooking the main field is always packed when the geese and swans begin to fly up in the spring. It's like watching a fantasy land with so many waterfowl.

There is plenty of parking but the restrooms were closed in March and there is not any wildlife to view with all the snow.

We loved exploring the trails in the winter. We just walked around in our snow boots, but cross country skis would be great at this place. There are multiple trails with wooden walking paths that can be explored even in the winter, we had to come back on our last day in town for more. We even saw a moose... More

Creamer's Field is a FANTASTIC place to enjoy a good walk and explore nature. Beware: In the summer there are ALOT of mosquitos. Make sure you put on mosquito repellant. Enjoy the outdoor beauty that Fairbanks offers.

Went on the Winter Track Walk and had an amazing time. Learned about animal tracks in the snow and then went and found some. Guide was very knowledgeable and the ground and place are beautiful.

Its a great place to take a walk and during certain seasons of the year, its prime bird watching! You can take your dogs on a walk here as well, as long as you stay on the trail and dogs stay on a leash. During the winter, you can snowshoe, skijor and XC ski on the trails. I currently live...

We heard that we could ski here with our dog so we headed there as our second stop in Fairbanks so we could exercise the dog after a long road trip.
