This is a fascinating site to visits and helps you get a grasp on just how high the flood waters can get when the circumstances are just right. I was in Grand Forks for the 1997 flood and this really helps to put things into perspective.

Beautiful monument but would have appreciated a descriptive plaque. Cabellas is overrated!! Fear the ear!

Erected as a tribute and memorial to those lives that were lost in the many floods the Red River has had over the past few decades, this is a great monument to swing downtown and see.

I'd watched the record floods swallow Grand Forks on TV in '97 and cried then for all the horrors destroying that historic downtown area. Seeing the memorial, and the amazing park system, the magnificently restored historical buildings is a testament to the hardiness and perserverance of a wonderful population. I actually got goose bumps. WELL DONE. GF!!
