WOW! This place seems to be little know even to the locals. This FREE park up in the hills overlooks the Yucca Valley and there are a dozen or possibly MORE giant statutes of Jesus towering over you. There are even statutes in ruins, legless, armless. Very creepy and Beautiful. For the best shots be there around twilight!
Super kitschy park filled with giant statues of biblical characters. They pepper the hillside in different spots. It is located maybe a mile from the main road behind a modern church. There is a separate parking area when you follow the maps so you do not feel at all like you are intruding upon the local church. basically you could spend about 20 minutes checking out the statues and taking fun photos and looking inside a tiny chapel on the hillside. It's the kind of roadside attraction that is an easy fun excursion and you won't find much like it anywhere else, so check it out!
Amazing place to visit. Fyi-Actual location address is 56200 Sunnyvale dr, yucca valley, CA 92284
I absolutely loved this place! We chose to come here on a Sunday after the adjoining church had completed their services for the day. We were the only visitors there. This place is a true labor of love by the artist, we were all very moved. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful. The small Rock Chapel was a wonderful place to whisper a short prayer. We were very happy to find this place through a travel blog and have recommended a visit to friends and family. My parents lived in this town for years and we never even knew this was there. We would definitely visit this place again!
