This was a very unique place to visit. There was a huge garden and chapel that displayed life sized figurines of the precious moments characters. It was a great place to go with your family

This is such a nice place to stroll through. So good to see that some things are still around for the right reason. Stop and take a stroll through the grounds for tree, can't find many places like that anymore!

This place is so beautiful. My family and I were in town for a wedding so we decided to stop by the chapel. I loved how peaceful that you feel while walking the grounds of this wonderful place. It is definitely worth going to.

There was a restaurant inside the complex with a limited menu (think burgers) and hours. Unsure of the hours of operation on the chapels.
