It was good to see him memorialized having followed his trip. We saw the memorial in Thunder Bay and so admired both he and his Mom for carrying on his dream

I commend the city for having that lovely area and statue as a tribute to a Canadian hero. Very touching to visit and very emotional. Wish there were more people like Terry Fox and his contributions to cancer research continue to this day.

It is wide open to the public 24/7, as it is outdoors. Might require a flashlight in the dark to read signage.
