Pioneer Park (Alaskaland)
A display of rather rusty equipment in the 'Mining Valley'.
There's also the 'Alaska Salmon bake' and a pond with replica sluice boxes.
Pioneer Park is a frontier theme park with picnic area, shopping village, barbecue court and community center on the Chena River. One can ride a train around the 44-acre park and play minature golf. Look at Rusty Heurlin's paintings in 'The Big Stampede' moving theatre. Browse through 'Gold Rush Town', 'Native Village' and 'Mining Valley'. Dance in the 'Farthest North Square and Round Dance Center'. Get stuffed at the salmon bake. Visit the sternwheeler riverboat 'Nenana' and president Warren G. Harding's railroad car 'Denali'. There's the Pioneer Hall Museum, the Native Village Museum and -in a gold dome designed by Buckminster Fuller- the Pioneer Air Museum. Last but not least there's the enjoyable Palace Theatre and Saloon featuring 'The Golden Heart Review'.
