I submitted an edit to this because the name of the Park is Pennekamp State Park and that’s what’s includes the statue.

Besides, I’ve been to the park on a glass bottom and snorkeling tour but I’ve never made it all the way down to the statue AFAIK, so this allows me to check it off :wink:

Thanks for submitting your edits! If you have any questions about your submissions or edits, I would send an email to the database editors at Thanks again for reaching out!

Thanks a lot. I just joined the website this week and it’s been such fun. I’m a freelance writer so I also submitted some articles to the editorial team
