Read about this statue before I arrived in Bangor, it was easy to find driving downtown, but there was no place to park to get a picture. Paul Bunyan is well kept an a part of Maine hertitage. Quite a sight.

Noticed that this was an attraction. For an out of towner, it's more of a place to take pictures to me.

Good:
-Great picture to take
-Clean and well maintained

Bad:
-Parking

I'm so glad the did not move him, he is part of the Bangor family. always brings a smile to my face when I see him . A land mark that no one can miss when looking for the civic center

I grew up in Bangor so I've seen the statue a lot. I feel proud he is part of our heritage. He represents one of ME logging history which was pretty significant to the growth and development of the state.
Oh, and the title of this review- I recently learned that my grandmother thought he was very handsome. If you look across at him from the Hollywood casino parking garage you can see she was right.
