This Little Known Natural Oasis Is Hiding In Vermont… And You’re Going To Love It
Located next to Great River Outfitters, a four season outdoor adventure company, the Path of Life Garden is a wonderful way to explore the cycle of life, enjoy natural beauty and cleanse your soul. This special place is a perfect destination after a day of exciting fun, during an onsite camping trip or simply just a destination on its own.
The Path of Life is a sculpture garden just 4 miles from the historic downtown of Windsor that tells the story of the circle of life from birth to death and venturing beyond.
Begin your walk on the path of life through the works of art in the sculpture garden.
The Family section consists of five long flat stones which form a circle that represents the family, but it is up to the visitor to decide what the family is. The stones were worked by someone at sometime in the distant past, suggesting ancient stone circles that have been discovered in Vermont.
The 18 magnificent areas each reflect a different aspect and is surrounded by 14 acres of natural beauty including trails, wildflowers and open spaces on the banks of the Connecticut River. The area here represents Community.
