It’s a pretty nice place. The sculptures are very nicely made and it each has its own story. The area around it is also nicely maintained and planned. We also loved how it has mount Shasta on its background

Take the time to read the sculptor's comments on the brochure (at the info kiosk) to gain even more insight for these beautiful works of art. Each piece evoked real feeling and renewed appreciation for the men and women who risk everything to protect us.

The Living Memorial Sculpture Garden is a collection of large iron sculptures commemorating veterans and heroes killed in action. The drive along US-97 is beautiful along the northern foot of Mt Shasta and alone worth the trip.

The stark and emotional sculptures in the lonely naked high desert with the ferocious Mt Shasta looming overhead is an emotional highlight to the compelling, stark, breathtaking creations of a singular artist. A true and emotional tribute to a war that left a generation of...More

The gentleman at the Mt Shasta Visitors Centre told us about this and I am so glad he did. It was a bit further from Weed than we expected and almost bypassed it. It's quite a tribute to honor all veterans and you can just...More

I was excited to find this free attraction along the highway. The sculptures amid the surrounding landscape are perfection. Children too young to appreciate the sculptures could enjoy walking the labyrinth.

This memorial sculpture garden is a fabulous tribute to honor all US veterans. The layout of the garden allows you to roam, contemplate, and reflect on each of the conflicts the US has been involved in and the sacrifice our veterans and their families have...More

We know it is hard to find! It is off the highway between Weed and Doris. I don't think you'll see it on gps. It really is in the middle of no where. There is a sign when you approach and a very large parking lot, with weeds... More

All memorials are accessible by wheelchair, no map is necessary, you can easily see where you need to go to see all sculptures. I can't really speak to the weather questions, we were there in July.
