Over the years have driven though to Ontario from Alberta and always tried to stop here while driving. Our last trip was in the fall of 2016. The view is spectacular and the washroom facilities were well above average for cleanliness etc. We parked here and had lunch. Lots of picnic tables etc. The memorial to Terry Fox is beautiful...

This monument to Terry Fox is situated just outside Thunder Bay, atop a hill overlooking Lake Superior, the monument itself tells his story. A quiet stroll around the monument gives one the opportunity to reflect on his journey but also to reflect on ones own personal journey...i find it to be a place of peace and tranquillity. I believe everyone... More

We enjoyed visiting the Terry Fox Monument. It's just off the main highway, very clean and the grounds are well kept. It's a must see for families and to remember a hero

Amazing statue that helps to show how great this individual was. When you look out over the water from the statue you can see the sleeping giant and the people inside the visitors center are very knowledgeable about the area.

Had a chance to drive out to Terry Fox Memorial and spent a relaxing hour there. It was a very spiritual and thought filled hour. Definately worth the time.

Very well maintained but would be better suited in a more touristy area. It is very out of the way for just that one attraction.

The Terry Fox lookout is a must. Let's face it anyone who runs from Halifax to Thunder Bay on one good leg (full intention of making it to Victoria BC) has created a credibility deserving to passerbys to take a ten minute peek, also offering a breath taking view of Lake Superior and one of Canada's great wonders The Sleeping...

Great place to have a quick pit stop and read about Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope, if you don't already know about it. Easy in and out from Highway 17.
