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!

This is a lovely little park with fountain, gazebo, lovely hedges and flowers. A nice little roadside attraction!

We enjoyed the stop but was very disappointed that there was nothing to see near it, get a cup of coffee or anything.

The road is really nice but there are no businesses to help support or make me want to go there again.

Roadtrippers app says it’s on the left side and it’s a little bit further down the road on the right. It is across from the police station.

I hate to say this to Popeye, unless the town gets some businesses around it, I wouldn’t recommend making a special trip. You’ll be there for about two minutes.

Just look at the pics everyone added and call it a day.

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.
