This was a fun stop. Monument is huge! We explored the park area as there is a nice playground and good views of the river. It was fun to learn a little about a local legend as well.

Good use of local limestone to honour a local person. It is fun to climb the structure and look out over the area.

Super easy to find. Lots of parking available. Bathrooms on site. It’s a really neat statue that offers a lot of photo ops and has a cool story. There’s also a beautiful park below with a river and playground and pavilions.

I love that this statue is so unique! There is a scan tag beside the plaque telling you what it is that brings up a lot more information about why and what. You already know where 😀 it includes a audio message from the artist!...More

This is a unusual stacked stone face of a native chief who had an encampment here. I was a bit underwhelmed at the sculpture. But I'm not very familiar with stacked stone renditions of faces. You can walk around the back and stand at the...More
