The Coming King Scripture Prayer Garden.

The Coming King Scripture Prayer Garden

The 77-foot-high empty cross is part of a 24.5-acre park on top of a hill beside I-10. There are bronze statues of Mary, the "Fisher of Men," the "Divine Servant," and an 18-foot-high "The Coming King." Paths and benches are spread around a 300-foot-long cross-shaped garden. Over $2 million was spent on the garden and $3 million on Christian sculptures made by three internationally known artists. Free admission. Very peaceful and serene. Open 7 am to midnight.

The cross itself, plus the sculptures, Bible passage walk and prayer garden, make this a moving and soul-refreshing pit stop.
