Also known as Indian River Park and Totem Park, the National Historical Park in Sitka is Alaska’s oldest federally designated park. Established in 1910 to commemorate the Battle of Sitka that took place in 1804 on the point of land where the Indian River flows into Sitka Sound, the remains of the Kiksadi fort is its outline, marked by posts. The surroundings largely remain unchanged. Visitors enjoy the scenic 107-acre park views replete with Native arts of several totem poles along a short series of trails.
Here is a classic combination of Northwest Coast totem poles and temperate rain forest, combining the scenic coastal trail within Sitka National Historical Park. The totem pole park is breathtaking... You feel as if fairies might appear at any moment. Nature, Nature, Nature.
