Great history
Feb 2021
I had no idea this statue was here until my friend and I looked up places to visit in St John's. It's a beautiful statue with some placards with interesting facts on them, but like a few others noted, the location isn't idea. Yes, it's the place where he started his run so you can't really change that, but there is minimal parking and very easily missed!

Overall, I'd recommend it to everyone passing through.

Moving tribute to an inspiring Canadian
Sep 2020
This is tucked away in a corner by the harbour, but well worth visiting to pay homage to a great Canadian and great human being. It's a low-key tribute in a little park, and it's the more moving for that.

Great signage for significant commemorative sculptural site

Loved the sculptural landscaping and bronze figure, and appreciated the signage and explanations of Terry Fox's monumental challenge/journey. Wonderful homage to a Canadian hero.

Terry Fox is a icon for most Canadians. He is standing for energy, great will and never give up thoughts!
He started his great run from here across Canada.

Where it all began for Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope
Oct 2019
A small but inspiring tribute to Terry and the enormous contribution he made, and continues to make, to Cancer research. The monument is tucked away in a corner of St. John's harbour, and in addition to inspiring memories of Terry it provides a good view of the harbour entrance and associated marine traffic. Parking is limited, but it can also be reached on foot from downtown. The small park area associated with the monument is pleasant and provides opportunities for quiet reflection.

St. John's City Core
Oct 2019
The lovely city of St. John's was a pleasure to visit. Which it's charming multicolour row homes, and scenic ocean and hillside views along with it's unique and family style restaurants, it's a must do experience.

Great tribute - but they need to promote it more!!
Sep 2019
No signs or promotion to tell you where this great tribute to a Canadian hero is located.

We drove around the area for a few minutes, then set out on foot to find it.

Finally - tucked away in front of a harbourfront office - that appears to be off limits to the public.

Honestly - something more should be done to make it more accessible and easier to locate!!

Mile 0 (should be mile amazing)
Sep 2019
Tucked away in a corner of a very picturesque City stands a monument to a man and his amazing vision of hope and perseverance. The small memorial on a small piece of soil is dwarfed by the legacy that he created. A must see for everyone..
