Parks & Recreation

With Kenai Fjords National Park as our backyard, Chugach National Forest our neighbor, and Caines Head State Park to the south, Seward offers ample ground to play. The waters of Resurrection Bay attract pleasure-boaters, anglers, sailors, kayakers, and those who enjoy strolling the beaches.

Along the coast of Resurrection Bay you’ll find our boat harbor, private & commercial moorage, vessel storage and repair facilities, and three easily accessible public beaches.

A public walkway connects businesses along the small boat harbor and a paved bike path connects the harbor to historic downtown. Seward’s parks offer camping, hiking, fresh-water fishing, picnicking. Waterfront Park includes a brand-new open skate park, a community-built play area, and the Branson Pavilion, perfect for family and group get-togethers.

Seward features numerous local trails – perfect for getting out-of-doors, whether on foot, bicycle, horse, cross-country skis, or snowmachine. Public ball fields and the high school’s gym support a number of intramural sports teams, and the high school swimming pool offers public access.
