Springfield, Illinois: Green Elephant

Standard, life-size elephant statue, usually painted pink elsewhere. Green here, and seems to be missing the top of its skull.

Southeast edge of downtown. On the north side of S. Grand Ave. E. midway between S. 11th and S. 12th Sts. The elephant stands next to a building wall, so it's only visible driving west.

Green Elephant

The Green Elephant really is bright green and displays advertising for the next door record store on his body. Great murals around the area also.

[Meg Lukens, 06/02/2017]

The elephant stands on a trailer, so he might be elsewhere when you visit.
