Labyrinths & Gardens

Garden at Clark Gardens

For centuries, labyrinths and gardens have provided a serene atmosphere for relaxation, meditation, and reflection. A simple stroll in the gardens, an intentional walk around the labyrinth, a quiet space in nature to rest, all help to calm and even transform your mind.

From labyrinths to gardens, find your sanctuary here.

Clark Gardens Botanical Park & Labyrinth

Lose yourself as you wander through beautiful gardens with the soothing water features and serene walkways of Clark Gardens. Almost anywhere in this 35-acre oasis is a great spot for quieting your mind and to taking a moment for meditation and reflection.

Clark Gardens Chapel

For a more solemn and sacred moment, step into the chapel where the silence brings comfort and divine wisdom.

Tucked into the west side of the garden among the Historic Tree Trail is a healing labyrinth inviting you to meander it’s gentle path. Spiral to the center and back out again, bringing clarity and balance with each slow step.

National Vietnam War Museum Meditation Gardens and Labyrinths

You might not consider a museum when seeking out a healing setting in nature, but at the National Vietnam War Museum, the gardens were actually installed first. In fact, there are six gardens and two labyrinths on the grounds.

Meditation Garden

A gift from the Parker County Master Gardeners, the Meditation Garden leads guests down meandering stone-lined pathways to a gazebo or one of two labyrinths.
