Lewistown Community Labyrinth Garden

The garden was started back in 1996 by a group of volunteers.  It's maintained by over 30 gardening volunteers that plant, weed, prune and keep the flowers healthy.

According to Enjoy Lewistown:

The Garden is a seven-circuit labyrinth that provides a sacred setting, an abundance of flowers, and a “Keeper of Dreams” Sculpture.  Celebration stones line the paths, given in remembrance of family and friends who have gone before us.

Over the years, the garden has become very popular for weddings and other gatherings, as well as a place to sit and find your center.

The next time you're in Lewistown, do yourself a favor and visit this beautiful labyrinth.  Here's a sneak peek.
