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...

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.
