Saw this & most of downtown with a local on her free weekend walking tour. Really appreciated her insight into the background of Terry Fox & why it's so important to Canadians

This is the first time we have visited the Terry Fox Monument! Friends had disembarked from a cruise and this was their one request! The Monument and park around it is well worth visiting! It preserves the man and the cause in good taste!

Very touching experience for all who knew of Terry Fox and his stamina to run across Canada. It definitely is a site to visit & reflect. We found the signage for the memorial was not very good and we drove by it a couple times before actually finding it.

No signage on the road. Such an important monument should not be so hard to find. It was underwhelming considering how impressive the Terry Fox monument in Thunder Bay Ontario is.

Wandered into this accidentally but was neat to see and in an interesting area of St. John's. I wouldn't drive out of my way to view it but would definitely wander by if in the area.

I organized the Terry Fox Runs in Langley, BC. I followed Terry Fox when I moved across Canada. Seeing where it all began was very emotional and special. Terry Fox is a true Canadian hero, to see where he started his epic journey is a must if you are in St. John's.

Touching and memorable.
A tribute to his journey and how hard this was and what it took out of him. A magnificent statue where it feels like his eyes are looking right at you.
An iconic tribute to a true Canadian hero.

What a beautiful and moving tribute to such a great person! The place where he started his journey with a goal to cross all of Canada, you can't help but be moved. Very well done job of honouring one of our heroes. A little tucked away, but well worth finding.

Beautiful and moving tribute to a Canadian hero. About a 20-25 minute walk from downtown. Very informative.

The Terry Fox Monument is most definitely worth a visit and touched my husband and I deeply. I could just imagine seeing him there dipping his foot into the ocean to begin Marathon of Hope, inspiring us even to this day to help find a cure for cancer!
