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!

Worth the stop to see it. We were in our RV and parking g was tricky. Navigation was mostly perfect. Just a block down from the fountain and garden is an old train and fire truck that is worth a picture also.

Cute photo op. Further down the road was also the chamber of commerce located in an old caboose. The town is run down however looks like they have a lot of projects in the works to restore things. Popeyes was well maintained and a great time to walk around.

This was super cute to see. Couldn't stay long though because it was cloudy and rainy.
