Desert Christ Park

Desert Christ Park sits on a hill overlooking the town of Yucca Valley. It is a small park (3.5 acres) with 40 bright white statues depicting Jesus and his teachings. The park has been around since 1951, the work of sculptor Antone Martin who started sculpting the statues during the cold war, hoping they would inspire world peace. You can walk or drive around the park every day during daylight hours. Its an odd little place and worth a visit.

Yucca Valley Attraction!

The gang's all here!

I call this one Sassy Jesus!

Teaching Jesus.

Wild with this desert back drop.

Hallelujah Jesus
