Like so many other reviewers have mentioned - what a surprise to see the extant of the buildings that are here and what their future plans are. The carving is an immense undertaking and I hope that one day they are able to finish it....More

We almost didn't stop, but decided to enter. There is so much more to do and see here than we ever imagined. We had no idea of the huge plans the foundation has for the site, far beyond the sculpture itself, which is magnificent. There...More

$11/person to get in the park. $4/person to ride the bus. We spent an hour, but you could spend a lot more time.
