Talkeetna Wild Woods Park Playground
The Talkeetna Community Playground Project is a volunteer effort imagined by children and built in 2008 by the community for Talkeetna and it�s visitors to enjoy for years to come. We are a non-profit organization operating as a committee of the Talkeetna Community Council.  Designed for children 2-12 years old, it was built adjacent to the library. The "playground build" was a legendary occasion simultaneously involving hundeds of locals. Whether you have kids or not, we recommend a visit - it's a magical place!

3D display of the Alaska Range, Bradford Washburn photos, and history, history, history!  The museum is a great activity for a rainy day.  It seems like every time you go inside, you find something new, taking you back to the days of homesteading and gold mining.

 

Talkeetna Ranger Station The Talkeetna Ranger Station offers free programs in the summer.
Climbers attempting to summit Mt. McKinley register with the National Park Service here.  Free slide shows and interactive presentations.  Schedules are posted at the Talkeetna Ranger Station and on the Post Office bulletin board

 

Bear Necessities
Keeping bears wild and people safe
Visit Bear Necessities' website to learn more about how to coexist peacefully with local bears.  Click to enlarge photo.
The explosion in summer tourism in Talkeetna has led to an increase in exposed garbage, attracting bears.  The summer of 2001 resulted in several bears ending up getting killed.  Bear Necessities is a grass roots organization that formed to work, through education and action, to promote bear- aware human behavior in order to minimize conflict between people and bears.
