This is the front of President's Park in Lead, South Dakota. There is a path through the trees that you walk along to see busts of all 42 of our nation's Presidents.
Here's their promo info:
Each Presidential bust has a biographical panel and state and national flags of their era placed beside them. All 42 statues of our nation’s presidents are chronologically arranged along beautiful, naturally gardened trails. Self guided and guided tours of themes are available. Including themes about our Presidents in the military, their impact and the impact on others, the first ladies and their contributions, assassinations-the attempts and plots. We also have monuments to instrumental events in our history.
Presidents Park is the Master works of internationally known artist and sculptor David Adickes.
Adickes is best known for his 67-foot statue of Sam Houston, A Tribute to Courage, the world's tallest statue of an American hero.
I thought the photo on the right was really cool—it's Adickes standing in the bend of Houston's arm.
