My friend and I happened upon this magical place by accident and had the most wondrous walk through the forest, looking at the sculptures.
We were filled with so much peace and it was just so beautiful. Please visit there!!

The Humanics Sanctuary And Sculpture Park was the perfect way to spend a couple of hours in the fall. An absolutely beautiful setting, surrounded by inspirational art from around the globe . Who could have guessed it is only minutes from the city. Highly recommend going, wear good shoes, bring a water bottle and enjoy some wonderful time in nature.

We spend 2 hours walking these beautiful well maintained walking/hiking trails. There were SO many fascinating & educational spots showcasing amazing hand carved sculptures from around the world, representing awareness of “Who we are” by sharing the essential values of 1. Oneness 2. Equality 3. Interconnection.

We took over 30 pictures & read all the sculpture info boards displayed, which reflect which religion AND essential value, each sculpture represents.

We were SO impressed, we bought an annual membership so we can come as many times as we’d like & plan to bring our children AND grandchildren.

This is an awesome venue for Celebration of Life, Weddings, Family Gatherings, Meditation Workshops, etc..

Located just 1/2 hour from Ottawa and nestled in the town of Cumberland, just off Highway #174, with access to the Park from Old Montreal Road.

Well done and MANY more expansion ideas in the works!

This outdoor sculptor park is a wonderful place to visit. The beautiful forest, peaceful paths, and gorgeous statues are a delight. Although located about 30 minutes outside of Ottawa by car, this is a site that I will recommend to anyone visiting the nation's capital. Definitely plan to return.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience visiting Humanics Sanctuary & Sculpture Park. The staff was very friendly and gave us lots of information. It is a very peaceful and unique experience. The sculptures are beautiful. It's definitely worthwhile to take some extra time to appreciate the sculptures and the environment. It's also a great place for a picnic.

The peacefulness. You can spend an hour or two or more just meandering along the forest paths. Take a picnic lunch. Relax.

Our small group spent a relaxing couple of hours meandering along the lovely path through the woods. It was a very peaceful, thought-provoking experience as we chatted about the sculptures that represented different religions and cultures. The sculptures of a horse, elephant and giraffe made from engine parts were fascinating. This park is definitely a unique experience. Thanks to the creator of the park and his staff and volunteers for a great day.

What a great park! The staff were very friendly and informative and the stroll through the park was delightful. The sculptures are fabulous… creative expressions of all the great religions. I will definitely be back. You can easily walk the path in less than an hour but it can take much longer if you take the time to appreciate and read about each sculpture (a map and book is provided). There are hills in the terrain.

Upon arrival at the Humanics Institute we were greeted by very welcoming staff. They explained both the the physical layout and concepts behind the sculptures and trails.

Esther was especially helpful, and she went out of her way to address all of our questions.

This is a peaceful place to enjoy a relaxing walk in the woods.

LOVED the visit to this hidden gem. Had a gorgeous afternoon last Sunday and WOW, what a wonderful experience. Just loved the entire forest bath and connection to the historical beauty in statues along a nine-acre walk through the woods. Love that The Humanics Institute strives to promote the following 3 principles: Oneness, Equality and Interconnection. The descriptions beside the sculptures and the thought-provoking questions asked along the way was so very grounding and makes you really stop and think about how all religious and cultural groups are all essentially connected with shared values. While they close over the winter as they have to wrap the sculptures to protect them, I am looking forward to coming back for a visit again soon and just shared a must visit on facebook too!
