AAA Editor Notes
Memorial Park is at 5668 Poplar Ave. (US 72). This suburban cemetery contains the Crystal Shrine Grotto, a man-made crystal cavern. Mexican artist Dionicio Rodriguez scooped out part of the hillside and made a cave of natural rock, quartz crystal and other semiprecious stones from the Ozark Mountains. The life of Jesus Christ is depicted. Of interest is the Fallen Heroes Memorial, Front Fountain and the Annie Laurie Rose Garden.
