Parks & Campgrounds

Soldotna Creek Park is truly our community's back yard. Residents and visitors alike enjoy breathtaking scenery, with boardwalks, gravel paths, and benches all overlooking the stunning aquamarine Kenai River, the rolling hills of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, and in the distance, the snow-capped Kenai Mountains. The large Fred Meyer Pavilion accommodates events and live music all year, and a community-built playground brings out the kid in all of us.

The park hosts so many events every year, it would be impossible to list them all here! A few highlights include the award-winning Frozen RiverFest, Alaska's only outdoor, family-friendly winter fest attended by breweries from across the state; the Kenai River Festival; Soldotna Progress Days; and the ever-popular Soldotna Wednesday Market, which includes food and craft vendors, a wide range of food trucks, and live music and a beer garden starting at 6 pm.
