We came upon the statue while walking along the Arkasas River. Once we caught sight of the 40 foot Indian we had to visit. Not only the statue, but the information provided about the Plains Indians make this a site worth seeing.

On of the best places for a date. The fires make it really nice in the evening. There is plenty of parking even though it is busy at times.

Love this part of the river walk! The lighting of fire each night is wonderful. A great place to walk, or sit and think/meditate!

Museum and park are so well done. The museum in interactive complete with drums that you are encouraged to play! Wonderful displays and the statue with it's surroundings is absolutely stunning. Walking bridges over waterfall, Displays are informative and thought provoking.
