Kenai City Welcome Sign Colorful Gardens Alaska

Colorful gardens blooming with summer flowers decorate the base of the welcome to the City of Kenai sign in Alaska, USA.

A large welcome sign sits at the entrance to the City of Kenai in Alaska, USA and during the spring and summer seasons, the gardens are radiant as they show off their colorful flowers. Tiers of flowers separated by wooden planks are tended to by municipal workers, a very cheery way to welcome guests to this city.

The City of Kenai is situated near Seward and Homer, Alaska at the meeting of the Kenai River and Cook Inlet. King Salmon fishing is excellent here and oil, natural gas, commercial fishing and tourism keep this city booming which is home to about 7,500 permanent residents.

It was not until 1940 that houses started to be built in Kenai and the first access into the city from Anchorage, Alaska was built in 1951. In 1953, a military base was erected and as 1957 arrived, oil was discovered at the Swanson River with more being found in Cook Inlet in 1965. Since those years, the City of Kenai has grown considerably and continues to do so every day.

The welcome sign and colorful gardens are just the first step into the Alaskan adventures available to visitors to the City of Kenai, Alaska.
