Mining display.

Sunshine Mine Happy Family Statue

A mining-themed park is behind the statue as well, so you can have all the fun of mining without the worry of being crushed or suffocated to death. Lots of fun bright colors.

Note: the park had lots of wild lawn mushrooms. Approach with caution if you're traveling with kids or pets. However, to be fair, mushrooms can just pop up overnight and perhaps the fungus among us was taken care of promptly after that.
