Two New Granite Monuments Added To Quarry Park
Fata Morgana Monument

Two monuments were recently added to Stearns County’s Quarry Park and Nature Preserve  with help from Sunburst Monuments.  The Stearns County Parks Deparment retired director Chuck Wocken says the sculptures show another side to Quarry Park that represent the art side of the granite industry.

Sitting inside the gate of the park, the first monument is a 4-ton sculpted piece of granite titled "Fata Morgana", which is Italian for complex mirage.The monument was donated by the St. Cloud Convention & Visitor's Bureau

Standing near the double hoist derrick near the parking lot, the second monument made of St. Cloud red granite educates the visitors of the history of the equipment on display. Monumental Sales manufactured the monument and donated it to Quarry Park.
