“My grand daughters just love the gardens, especially the labyrinth. They had a friend over on Sunday and of all the things they could have done, they chose to bring her to the Gardens because she had never been there and they thought she just had to see this magical place right in our own backyard.”  ~Ramona Ault

The ‘Broken Link’ sculpture anchors and brings energy to the center of the Labyrinth


“This is one of most beautiful labyrinth installations I’ve ever seen!” ~Richard Aquino







They wrote their intentions on rocks and deposited them at the base of the sculpture in the center of the Labyrinth.
