This monument is worth the stop, the grounds are clean and functional and the view from the monument is great. You can see the sleeping Giant from where it is located. This is a great location to visit with the family.

Easily accessible to travelers in either direction on 17. Monument and overlook are well maintained. Nice tribute and memorial for a Canadian hero.

This is a very well done tribute/memorial. We enjoyed visiting there. The visitor center was already closed for the day at 6:30.

I am working in the Thunder Bay area and there was no way I was not going to visit this monument to one of the greatest Canadians. It is a beautiful area right of the Trans Canada hwy. A must visit by all Canadians

A nice memorial monument to Terry Fox’s marathon end point. Piece of Canadian history. Not too far out of Thunder Bay, short drive.

This is worth the stop as it offers the best view of Thunder Bay that we encountered. Beautiful park and a great view of the city as well as the bay.

The sculpture itself is really a poignant statement to Terry Fox and bring backs memories of his tragic attempt to run across Canada. Worth a visit.

This young man ran 26 Miles every day across 5 provinces for 3339 Miles. Who wouldn’t be inspired. And the monument is a testament to this courage and determination. It was a steep ride on our bikes to the observation point, but well worth it....More

Just a few minutes from town, well worth the trip to see the monument. Nice view of the water from the monument.

Hi there, it was moved in 1993. In 1993, the MTO relocated the monument to a new rest area directly across the road. An old concrete base marks the original monument's location, and it is still visible in the tall grass from... More
