Left - When the Terry Fox Monument was originally dedicated in 1982, it was located on the south side of Hwy 11 & Hwy 17 in the flat grassy area seen in this photo. The tiny rest area and scenic lookout was inadequate for the large number of visitors who stop at the monument every year. In 1993, the MTO relocated the monument to a new rest area directly across the road. An old concrete base marks the original monument's location, and it is still visible in the tall grass from the new Terry Fox scenic lookout. The new Terry Fox Memorial Park has considerably more visitor parking than its predecessor, and it has much better facilities for tourists. See an Enlarged Photo here.
