Visitor Tips and News About Blue Whale
Our GPS couldn't find the posted address, but the Whale is there and worth the trip. If you're lucky the curator (and son of the builder), Blaine Davis, will be there to share the story of his parents, show you around the park behind the locked gates, and take your picture while you're inside the whale. The park is also a nice shady spot for a picnic.[Cate S., 08/20/2013]
This is a sweet gift any lady would be lucky to receive. Wouldn't ever suggest swimming, but it's always a great photo.[Sarah Feken, 04/14/2012]
Great news about The Blue Whale! Catoosa Arts & Tourism is now working on bringing "Blue" back to life. Part of the Snack Shack has been opened up to sell souvenirs on the weekends (until Oct. 17th).
We are also having the first Blue Whale Christmas this year, where Blue will be lit up and Santa will be there to take pics with the kids. There are a lot of big plans for his future.[Laura, 10/17/2010]
Big Blue Whale On-The-Air will be Saturday September 20, 2008 from about 10 AM to 4 PM CST. K5NOW and a few friends will be operating a temporary amateur radio station from the "belly of the whale," making radio contacts from all over the USA, and possibly farther if band conditions permit. It is a fun project coinciding with Route 66 OTA, which is a national event where 18 special event stations will be operating from California to Illinois, September 13th to the 21st, commemorating Route 66 the Mother Road.[H W, 08/31/2008]
