Kenai Peninsula Borough, AK

The Kenai Peninsula Borough is a large administrative region located in Southern Alaska. It covers an area of over 24,000 square miles and encompasses the entire Kenai Peninsula and several parts of mainland Alaska.

Named after the original Native Alaskan tribe called the Kenaitze that once lived in the area, the borough is home to some of the largest cities in the southern part of the state including Cooper Landing, Seward, Homer, Kenai, and the borough seat, Soldotna.

Recent data from the Census Bureau shows that the region had around 57,147 residents in 2013. That’s a 3.15% increase from its previous population of 55,400 residents in 2010.

The Kenai Peninsula, which extends over 150 miles southwest of the Chugach Mountains, is a major contributor to Alaska’s economy. The region is rich in natural resources such as coal, petroleum, and natural gas. Numerous private and commercial fisheries line its coasts and its seasonal climate allows for crops to be grown on its land.

Known as Alaska’s Playground, the Kenai Peninsula extends over 9,000square miles along the Gulf of Alaska. The incredible landscape is a major tourist draw, as are its fishing, wildlife, and water attractions including seashores, rivers, lakes, creeks and marshes.
