Many say it’s worth visiting if you are in the area and the scenery on the trip is better than the monument. You can expect to spend maybe 20 minutes at the park according to reviews.

It also looks like there are more reviews of the vendors at the site than the monument itself.

To give a little credit to the site: at least people are smiling in their pictures at the monument.
