Interesting plaque and a statue of Capt Cook. Wooden multilevel walkway to view the inlet and mountain.

Capt. Cook found Anchorage harbor but not northwest passage. This is one of 7 worldwide statutes - copied from one in Whitby England.

Great view of the bay, easy walk, lovely flowers. This was interesting and had history I was unaware of.

This was worth the time just because it was close and historically speaking. Not only did it have the statue of Cook, but you could walk down a boardwalk and see the beautiful scenery.

Resolution Park has a great statue of Captain James Cook and some nice views over Cook Inlet. It is far from a must-see destination but is worth a short stop if you are in the area.

The park itself is pretty average but the views across Cook Inlet to Mount McKinley and a whole bunch of other snow topped mountains was awesome - but you need a clear day to make the trip worthwhile.

Somewhat off the beaten path but worth the extra steps. Great viewing of the inlet and surrounding mountains and land mass. Signage highlighting the distant ranges needs some work to eliminate the effects of weather and local graffiti artists.

I wish we had known about this and planned a run while in Anchorage for one night. We had to satisfy ourselves with a walk before dinner. It is lovely, winds along the water. Lots of locals out at the end of their work day...More

I was out walking around one morning when I discovered this small park. While it is small this gives a lovely view of the water!

Small park near the water with view on the bay. There is a James Cook statue at the center. No need to get out of your way to see it.
