Precious Moments Park and Chapel

Precious Moments Park is not very busy, but is still very beautiful and neat to look at. You can learn a lot about the artist, the figurines, and the chapel while there. The outdoor landscaping and sculptures are very nice.

Walk all of the Precious Moments grounds -- there are so many neat things to see and some you really have to look for. I almost missed a couple cool things.

Yes! We remember spotting distant figures and structures "hidden" in the forest, barely visible from the main walkways and paths.
