I was opposed to this monstrosity from the beginning. It's an eyesore. Can't not see it. It soars over I -10 as you drive into Kerrville. It's hardly a garden.

We visited this wonderful place today. It looks like they are working on adding improvements all of the time. Today, scriptures were being tiled into the concrete and they are absolutely beautiful. The construction in no way takes away from this place. Wonderful bronzes are already in place. I look forward to coming back as things progress. Very special.

Gorgeous tribute to Christianity. This was once controversial in the community, it is now a beacon of beauty to all, especially travelers down I-10.

We love this place! The political struggle the owners went through with local “detractors” would have made lesser men crumble. Apparently guided by the hand of their Creator these folks managed to prevail over the dismal local government. The cross itself is magnificent. Progress to complete the various ancillary venues is underway. The view from the top is worth the drive. Sadly, Christian attractions like this are vanishing from the landscape as we pursue moral equivalence and political correctness.
