Our Lady of Fatima Statue Park
St. Mary’s Point- Indian Lake Ohio
Our Lady of Fatima Statue Park and Meditation Garden was built by the late George B. Quatman in 1964 as part of his “San Juan Amusement Park” entertainment site.
During it’s twenty years of operation, the San Juan Amusement Park, encouraged wholesome family entertainment. All proceeds were donated to charitable and children’s causes.
Our Lady of Fatima Statue and Gardens featured dancing fountains, music, picnic grounds and a light show at night. A train ride around the entire San Juan Amusement Park stopped at our Lady of Fatima Statue, where guests could visit, pray and learn the history of the Miracle of Fatima where Our Lady appeared to three children in Fatima, Portugal, in 1917.
Although Mr. Quatman died one month after it’s opening, Our Lady of Fatima Statue has continued to be a source of Blessing and reflection on Blessed Mother Mary, her Son Jesus, and for all children, like the three children from Fatima. St. Mary’s of the Woods Church celebrates Mass on this site every year for the Feast of the Assumption of Our Blessed Mother Mary into Heaven, from her last earthly home in Ephesus.
