In the mid 1990’s the parking area and original 600 ft boardwalk were constructed. In 1997 the upper area fish access improvements were built, and in 2004 the lower area fish access improvements were completed.

If you want to weigh your chances for catching sockeye, silver or pink salmon, Rotary Park is the place for you. Or feel free to leave the fishing pole behind and enjoy a walk along the 625 feet of elevated boardwalk.

Located near the Soldotna Municipal Airport, there is a small parking area at the head of the three-quarter mile maintained trail that leads to the river. The trail is handicap accessible with assistance. Restrooms are located in the same area as the parking lot.

This is a fee-use area. Visitors can pay per use or with a season pass available at Centennial Park, Swiftwater Park or the Soldotna Visitor Information Center.
