We went today and it is no longer free! You must pay $5 to park even if you are not paying admission to the Horse Park. Beautiful park and the statue is really cool! Lots of great info about the horse. They have a gift shop really close by you can stop in without paying admission too. (And restrooms)

On a very cold and windy day we found ourselves on I-75 and opted to take the exit (120) and snap a few photos of Man O' War. Didn't have to pay admission.

The grave of Man O' War (and many of his children) can be visited without paying park admission. It is outside the paid portion of the park. Turn left before entering the Visitors Building. Follow the path to the grave and statue.
