As others have said, while visiting Thunder Bay, this is a stop you should definitely make, to view the monument itself, read a little bit about Terry Fox and pay tribute to a Canadian legend. The scenic view of Lake Superior and the Sleeping Giant mountain is an added bonus while visiting here.

Terry Fox is a Canadian icon, certainly worthy of such a tribute. The monument is well worth seeing, and situated with a wonderful view of Sleeping Giant.

If you know the history this is a nice spot to reflect on a young man that impacted Canadians. It is a beautiful spot but it takes about two minutes to explore fully.

I am originally from the town Terry Fox grew up in, so seeing this statue was very cool. This is the 3rd one I've seen, with 2 others in Vancouver BC and Victoria all beautiful! Here in thunderbay on a sunny day you can see Sleeping Giant Provincial Park and right out onto Lake Superior.

We stopped by, en route to Winnipeg, just for a rest. It was a lovely surprise to find such a comfortable rest stop. The view was spectacular, the washrooms were clean and we learned a bit of Canadian history along the way.

What can you add to say about Terry. A true Canadian hero. His run ended in Thunder Bay when the Big C struck again. I remember exactly where I was when Terry died.

A beautiful location with easy access honoring a true Canadian Hero. Probably the best viewpoint of Thunder Bay and the Sleeping Giant that you will find in the area. Be sure to include a stop here in your travel itinerary and take a moment to consider the courage and determination that brought Terry this far.

This was a very beautiful monument dedicated to Terry Fox at the place where cancer forced him to stop his run all those years ago. Well worth seeing and the view of the lake from the monument was spectacular.

The Terry Fox monument is located on the edge of town and offers a spectacular outlook over the bay with a great view of the Sleeping Giant. There is a lovely monument to Terry Fox and his momentous run for cancer awareness. There is also a very helpful small visitor center with a lot of tourist information and restrooms (only... More
