“Bruce Lee very popular with young children.”
Review of Bruce Lee Statue

Bruce Lee Statue
Ranked #9 of 20 things to do in Kogarah
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 May 2016

I believe the Bruce Lee statue was a gift from one of the many sister cities of Kogarah. There have been some complaints Bruce is not 'relevant', and want the statue moved somewhere less visible than in Kogarah Town Square. I disagree as there are many Asian families living and working in Kogarah, and the little children seem to love Bruce's statue, and play around the area.
Kogarah is a hub for hospitals, medical specialists, schools, and Community Colleges. There are many cafes, small shops along the main streets, and supermarkets above and near the railway station and bus stops.
Unless you are a real fan, I doubt if visiting the Bruce Lee statue will attract a lot of people to Kogarah, if you did not have another reason for being there.

OK. It seems Kogarah, where this statue is displayed, has partnership with some city in China where Bruce Lee was born (?).
What did the Chinese get in return? A statue of Kogarah's claim to fame, Clive James?

I am a Bruce Lee fan( and of Chinese descent) and I cannot understand why this statue is here at all.Bruce never visited this country,let alone Kogarah. Sorry, but it is a waste of space.

I came here with family and it was a awesome little gem to honour one of the greatest martial arts experts ever. Do your best Kung Fu pose!

Just like Hong Kong too good to be true. Parking is a problem though Bruce is popular in Dragons country.
