A wonderful and tranquil time to walk, pray, relax and enjoy the outdoors and indoors. A one of a kind experience, that even if you are not religious, you will appreciate.

"Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while." Mark 6:31. Free, family friendly, large groups, even a great place to visit solo. Wheel chairs available for check out free during center hours. Beautiful landscaping, great photo opportunities, plenty of paved walking. I took my nephews here and they loved walking around outside and wanted to see... More

Lovely spot for a walk through the gardens, great place to stop and stretch your legs. The statues are all lovely; the only one that was less than impressive was the grotto-- the visible pumps and electrical wires took away from the experience (that, and the fact that one had to purchase candles in the gift shop --which was closed--...

I walked through Trinity heights and found it very moving. If one is non-Catholic, one will enjoy seeing some of the saints, Popes, and leaders in the Christian faith from Jesus to nearly present time. If one is Catholic, one will also enjoy the Stations of the Cross, and the Stations of Life. My favorite part is the life-size wood... More

The grounds of Trinity Heights are filled with pathways through flower gardens. If they had only stopped there. This is a highly, in-your-face religious attraction. Everywhere you look there are crosses in pressed concrete and references to Catholic dogma (i.e., the garden for the unborn, aka aborted babies). The gigantic stainless steel Mary and Jesus statues are just too over... More

This is a must in Sioux City- open to public receives many tour buses. Grounds feature last supper carving, prayer chapel , hard to describe. Place of peace and quiet. Recommend this to all

Visited on a Friday afternoon. We were able to see the various shrine's and statues, thanks to the helpful volunteers we were able to borrow a wheel chair. Well kept gardens and a great gift shop. We picked up a couple St. Christopher medals for our kids. We were able to go to the chapel during which Eucharistic adoration was... More

There were 2 sides to the outdoor garden section, and the Lord's supper was indoors. Simply amazed at the sculptures. We spent about an hour there, and still didn't get to read all of the informational plaques.

Start by viewing the 12 minute film on how trinity heights came about and the artist who did the sculptures of Jesus and Mary which are stunning! Very peaceful place to walk around and enjoy the many other sculptures and grounds.
