  • Beautiful park. We've driven by this so many times on our way to the States and hadn't stopped till today. It was well worth the visit.
  • The park and restaurant at the monument are nice. If you in the area check it out but not worth making a special trip for.
  • The monument is very tall, magnificent. very historic
  • Incredible! I can't wait to climb the stairs!!!!!
  • Amazing view of the river from way up inside the Monument if you don't mind climbing the narrow stairs. I submitted a picture to the images.
