Horseshoe Falls

This may be Arizona’s only non-equestrian equestrian monument! The iconic shape of the horseshoe representing the strength and stability of the West is the central form of this downtown rest stop.

Tall pillars made of stacked horseshoes stand within a horseshoe-shaped concrete seat wall. Dense fog periodically rises from a bed of river rock and cools the space for passing pedestrians and cyclists taking a moment to pause.

This artwork contains AR components.
