The chair is a pretty neat tourist sight but parking access to it is nil. We parked across the street on a residential street. Other than the parking, its a cool site to check out if you're in the area!

Large and crazy. If you have to ask why, don't bother. Drive by with out of towners point it out, but don't answer questions. Enjoy.

I had seen a pic of this chair somewhere in a travel brochure and decided we should make an adventure out of it and go find it ourselves.....so we did! Just note...there is NO parking anywhere close to it, just be careful and creative as to where you park. We parked in some tennant's driveway close-by but we weren't there... More

A good place for a picture and a nice view of the Mississippi river especially in autumn. Parking is on a side street.

It's a big green chair. It is the biggest chair we had ever seen for sure. It is located in a little park with some other very interesting sculptures. The whole thing takes about 10 minutes to see but bring your camera and get a picture of you sitting in the biggest chair ever.

Nice quiet little park in a residential neighborhood. If I were a child, I would have enjoyed climbing up the sculpture for a photo op. Not worth going out of the way for if you're travelling without children.

It is nothing more than a large green chair. But sitting in this giant green furniture gives one such a sense of space, of the balance of man and nature, of proportion. It moved me deeply and I am a different person because of the experience. I will never look at giant furniture the same way. I used to contemplate... More

In a tiny little park, not well kept up by the city. A fun and quirky place to stop and get your picture taken. Good site of an unusual interactive art piece. Busy road but free parking in the adjoining neighborhood.

The large green chair on smith street is a fun place to go with your family for a few minutes. It was pretty empty so we could climb right up. Make a quick tourist photo standing on a very large green chair for no cost. There is a beautiful view from the smith bridge right beside it. Gave it 4/5... More

Went here with the kids and got some very cute photos. It didn't take long to visit but it was worth it. We all liked the chair.
