President's Park

Do you think you would like to take a walk in park with 16 to 26 feet tall busts of American Presidents? If so, the Black Hills of South Dakota may have what you seek. For a mere $8, visitors can walk and see the large likenesses of all 42 men who have been the President of the USA. All of them from Washington to George W. Bush are present.

Can't make it to South Dakota? There is a sister park with the same busts in Williamsburg, Virginia. Maybe I can buy a franchise and open it here in Michigan.

Details on President's Park can be found at http://www.presidentspark.com/.

From the site:

Presidents Park is the Master works of Internationally known Artist and Sculptor David Adickes. The park sits in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota and features incredible likenesses of all 42 of our Nations Presidents majestically standing 20 feet tall.

The Park is an educational, art, and nature experience for adults, families, and school groups. Each Presidential bust has a biographical panel and state and national flags of their era placed beside them. All 42 statues of our nation’s presidents are chronologically arranged along beautiful, naturally gardened trails. Grab a bite to eat in our garden cafĂ© or picnic in the gazebos. We proudly serve Starbucks coffee. Self guided and guided tours of themes are available. Including themes about our Presidents in the military, their impact and the impact on others, the first ladies and their contributions, assassinations-the attempts and plots. We also have monuments to instrumental events in our history. Check out the beautiful Visitor’s Center and gift shop with Americana items. We also have a book store featuring Presidential books as well as other books.
