It is certainly worth stopping at this monument just outside Thunder Bay. An overview of Terry Fox’s contributions are available. The site provides parking, rest area and easy access from the highway.

Coming from the east, do not drive by the Terry Fox Monument without taking at least a few minutes to pay your respects, and learn a little more about this Canadian icon.

What a lovely tribute to a great man. Easier to access this monument park when you are westbound on the highway to Thunder Bay. The views of the surrounding area were spectacular.

Very nice tribute but road traffic is a bit unsettling for such a nice monument. The info center for Thunder Bay was nice to visit as well.
