Nike-Hercules missiles, like these at an undisclosed Alaska location in 1961, were based at what is now Kincaid Park. Site Point, as the facility was known, operated from 1959 to 1979.
A garden near the Kincaid Park stadium commemorates Andrew Lekisch, a high school athlete who died in a mountain fall in 1987. Several other memorial sites along the park’s trails include benches and scenic views. ERIK HILL / DAILY NEWS ARCHIVE 2000
