Long Description:
Located in the Seeds of Wonder Children's Garden this lifesize sculpture depicts a Galápagos tortoise...and of course folks have their photos taken while sitting on it.
Unfortunately there is no sign at the site indicating the artist or date.
A placerd informs us:

There is an inscription on the back of the tortoise reading:

"There is nothing greater than the joy a child gives to her parents."
