Venue Features
Kincaid Park is situated among 1,400 acres of rolling, forested hills, and beautiful scenery. We'll have a spectacular view of Mt. Susitna across Cook Inlet, Fire Island to the Southwest, and both Mt. Denali and Mt. Foraker to the North. Many species of wildlife roam free within the park. We're right on the inlet, and in the distance you can watch airplanes make their final approach into the airport -- cool!

I've rented almost the whole place! Includes:
Picnic pavilion - 1,260 sq. ft. outdoor covered picnic shelter.
Inside chalet - West Room, 2,350 sq. ft. (in case it rains).
Inside chalet - Food service area (kitchen and concession area).
On top of chalet - Sundeck.
Sports package - softball field, bases, bats and balls (no gloves), horseshoes and pit area, volleyball court and ball, soccer balls, and frisbees. Now how cool is that?!
And don't forget the alcohol permit! ;o)

On the extreme western edge of Anchorage. Off Minnesota Drive, take the Raspberry Road exit and follow it west. Once you enter the park, follow Raspberry Road to the very, very end. You'll see a big bunker, and the chalet is just past it. The road literally ends at the chalet.

Special Notes
Wear your reunion t-shirt!
Cell phone coverage is sketchy in the park.
Decorations: 4th of July theme.

Dawn's Comments
Again, I'm in love. The chalet was built in 1986, so that's why I had no clue that it existed. The park was once the site of a former Nike missile silo -- interesting history.
If I had to build a place to have our picnic, this would have been it! You're going to absolutely LOVE it!
