Owner description: What weighs 8,000 pounds, is 55 feet tall and wears a size 78 shoe? The largest statue of the Jolly Green Giant, that's what.
Reviewed 18 July 2014

This statue of the Jolly Green Giant (ho oh oh, green giant!) is set in a very nice park, easily reached from I-90 at Blie Earth, MN. He may be seen from the highway, among large oak trees. The park features a small gift/information building that looks like a one-room schoolhouse, and a couple of photo-op dugouts of the Green Giant and Sprout. The grass and flowers are well-kept, and the are several picnic tables scattered under the huge trees. A Dairy Queen is almost adjacent, but is blocked by the trees, so you could get food there and walk over to enjoy in Green Giant Park!

We stopped here on our drive from Sioux Falls to Minneapolis. There's not much to see, but it's a great place to get out of the car and stretch your legs for a few minutes. There's a Dairy Queen nearby if you need some food. I was hoping this stop would inspire my boys to eat their veggies, but it did no such thing.

This is a great stop for a few minutes to get off the highway and stretch your legs. It is also one of the most bizarre things that I have ever seen. It is located behind a Dairy Queen and across the street from a Wal Mart. And, lo and behold, there is a 55 foot tall giant standing in the middle of a small park.

One word of advise.... if you go after it rains, bring bug spray. There were hoards of mosquitoes!

Two years ago, we happened upon the Jolly Green Giant and we had to visit him again! This is a perfect stop to stretch your legs for a 5-15 minute visit. Climb a few steps to stand under the giant and get that family photo, you will not regret it!

Please note that the gift shop is not open on Sundays and the bathrooms are portable toilets.

This "attraction" is mainly a good way to break up a monotonus drive across Minnesota en route to The Badlands or Custer State Park. We were looking forward to a family photo with Jolly Green for a possible future Christmas card. Problem was we were the only family at the attraction so there were no other tourists to ask to snap a picture for us. There is a picnic area at the attraction. You can climb the stairs and stand on the platform. Keep in mind your family photo will be dwarfed by the giant if you include all of him in the photo. This attraction is visible from the interstate but we did have a little trouble navigating to it. I'm glad we made the effort to stop here. We got some silly photos for the scrapbook.
