Not quite the "attraction" people are looking for. You can drive by and get a good enough view of it. Was better before they built the new civic center, but now that building is taller than the statue and kinda dwarfs it.

My husband was very impressed with this Paul Bunyan as it was much better than the one in Bemedji, MN. The only thing lacking was a statue of Babe the Blue Ox.
