Brought some visitors from Finland to see the Terry Fox Monument and learn his story. The grounds were very well maintained, and everything was very well presented. The view of the sleeping giant is also spectacular.

An excellent depiction of the effort, pain and perseverance that Terry Fox must have gone through. Very proud to be a Canadian.

Stopped to see what it was. Quickly learned more about Terry and his couregeous run. Didn’t even stop at the visitors center.

We drove to this on our way north of the city. It was very convenient to just pull off the road. It has a cool tribute to this athlete, complete with a gorgeous view of the Sleeping Giant. There was a nice local man who told us the legend of the Sleeping Giant, so definitely look into that too if you’re going to stop by. Overall, nice view and doesn’t take a lot of time
