One unique and beautiful feature of Ariel-Foundation Park is The Tree of Life Labyrinth™, which can be accessed from The Woods, and is near the Schnormeier Events Center.

The 1000-foot winding walkway celebrates virtues of faith, hope, charity, love and peace. Walking the orderly path and pausing to reflect while sitting on benches along the labyrinth unifies the body, mind and spirit allowing the walker to leave the path feeling at peace. The Tree of Life Labyrinth™ was a gift of Jan and Ken Reynolds.

 While I’m walking the labyrinth I like to sit on one of the benches and just enjoy the peace and serenity.
