Don Parks - Yard of Statues and Stuff

Random collection of signs, statues, and junk that's all still in fairly good condition. Notable for the giant "Muffler Man" decorated as Paul Bunyan, complete with an axe. It's all crammed into the fenced-in front yards of two homes in an otherwise ordinary Phoenix neighborhood. Use your GPS, as there's a few tricky turns to get there. Worth the effort, though.

Great place to visit! Don was super nice and more than happy to show us around. If you can call ahead or catch Don there, he'll let you tour the houses inside and out.
