Burns Triangle, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA
City Park, Denver, Colorado, USA
and Garfield Park, Chicago, Illinois, USA
and there is also said to be a copy in Wellington, New Zealand.
Although a smaller version can be seen at Burns Cottage in Alloway there seem to be no other full-sized castings in the UK.
