If you want a good picture with it, go in the middle of the day so that the light is good. We went early evening and the lighting was not good for photos.

A nice little fountain with a statue of Popeye in the middle. Would not drive too far out of the way but worth seeing if close by. My kids enjoyed it.

Simple little fountain with Popeye in the middle, and a tiny park, but it's nice stop on the road!

Visiting Popeye and his garden was a nice stop on our long road trip. Beautiful garden, gazebos, and fountain! Location on this app is a little bit off, but you’ll find the fountain across from the Police Station.

Well worth a stop. Alma is a cute town, and Fayetteville Street leads to such a cute little park.

Nice little roadside attraction to visit. Lots of seating to relax for a few too. Must see if your driving through the spinach capital of the world.

The town looks like it’s a ghost town, very quaint and beautiful. The garden is gorgeous if you loved Popeye definitely worth the 6 miles off the highway.
