The Pioneer Park is a park in Fairbanks, Alaska noted for its numerous historic exhibits and displays. It was established in 1967 as the Alaska 67 Centennial Exposition in celebration of the Alaska Purchase. It was then renamed by former Mayor Red Boucher as Alaskaland, but was then renamed in 2001 to its present name so people won?t confuse it with being a family themed park primarily.

The Pioneer Park mainly commemorates the history of Alaska. Its displays include the ?Gold Rush Town? which is a collection of 35 restored historic buildings, the SS Nenana, the Denali Observation Car, a replica native Alaskan village, the Pioneer Hall, the Tanana Valley Railroad Museum, the Mining Valley, and the Mini Golf Fairbanks just to name a few.

The Pioneer Park is open year round, although concessions are only available from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
