Head up to the monument and enjoy the sweeping view of the surrounding city and bay. Admire the 2.7 m (9 ft) bronze statue, set upon a massive granite base, and its depiction of Terry Fox in the final steps of his marathon.

Terry Fox Monument Reviews
The statue is a great tribute. The monument is located at a great spot and provides amazing views of the sleeping giant provincial park. Nice spot for taking pics. more »
A most fitting tribute to a true Canadian Hero. You couldn't ask for a better location for this beautiful statue of Terry. It is a serene and tranquil place, just as it should be. more »
Beautiful spot and monument for such a great Canadian. Just up the road from the milepost that marks the end of the Marathon of Hope. The grounds and monument are very well kept and a great reminder of what it means to be selfless. Great views if that's what you want out of it. The best spot to view the sleeping giant.
Well worth it to get off the highway to have a few minutes to look. Also, this view is amazing!
