Replica of Rome's Colosseum.

Rock Garden

Cool outdoor rock garden in in back of a church lot with 1920-ish settings of castles built of small rocks. Notre Dame and the Colosseum are impressive!

Bring a little cash for the donation box at the end of the walk. This is a beautiful, worthwhile stop.
