The monument is gorgeous and the views are amazing. Well worth the drive off the Trans-Canada! There is a tourist information office right on site. Check it out.

The view was outstanding. Examining Terrys memorial was emotional and powerful especially if you had met Him. My family did during his journey. Tears of sorrow and pride.

Driving along the Trans-Canada Highway you must stop in to see the Terry Fox Monument. His gruelling Marathon of Hope ended just before Thunder Bay. The hauntingly, beautiful figure faces West, seemingly willing his spirit to "finish the race". From that vantage point you can...More

This is a must stop location if you are driving across Canada. This monument is as Canadian as it gets.

The monument is close to the place where Terry Fox was forced to end his journey. It's a short drive off the highway and it has great views that more then makes it worth the effort. The monument itself is worth it.

The meaning behind the Terry Fox statue is Canadian but the view is world class, it is an inland ocean.

The Terry Fox Monument is very welcoming and has a lot of meaning. The Tourist Information Centre is right there, as well as picnic tables. There is also a great view! Worth a stop.

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
