The setting isn't ideal. These magnificent creations by Bob Cassilly are crammed into a small park adjacent to the freeway. It is across a small bridge (Tamm Avenue) from the Zoo, but the sound of traffic is annoying. However, the turtles are visible from I-64, where they are an unexpected and amusing sight. A water fountain was leaking, so there were puddles everywhere. I think the turtles deserve a better spot, but they are still well worth a visit. There is a small parking lot at the playground at Oakland Avenue.
Yes, the turtles are that big! That's an adult lady with child
