Hidden Gem-AMAZING forest walk through sculpture park!
Oct. 2021
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!

Wonderful getaway 30 min from Ottawa
Aug. 2021
Wonderful place to be among among art and nature. We went in late August in the mid-afternoon and there were no bugs to pester us! Was a lot larger than I expected and there is immense potential for growth. There are also group activities scheduled on weekends, so this is a place where you can visit regularly as a getaway from the hustle and bustle of modern living.
As other reviewers mentioned some of the trails are rather steep, so some of the sculptures and trails might be inaccessible if you have mobility issues.
Looking forward to visiting this place again!

Quiet Calm in a Busy City
Aug. 2021
What a wonderful experience. A beautiful park with intriguing sculptures - showcasing how all the religions of the world basically hold the same beliefs…all people are worthy, all roads lead to goodness.. good thoughts, good words, good deeds! Lovely concept… except for the humans that get in the way. 😂
Some sculptures are two-sided, showing one image on the front and another focus on the back. Delightful.
Over the years, the collection will only grow and become more and more intriguing.
The park is thoughtfully planned out … all the sculptures are snuggled into nature, bonding with it, not competing. A nice stroll through shaded trees and a small creek.
There are a couple of picnic tables, perfect for a lunch or snack.
Go and see this… you won’t be disappointed.

Must see!

This hidden gem is a remarkable way to spend a morning, afternoon or whole day. The sculptures are amazing and the walk through the forest is a great way to discover, and learn, about the world’s religions.
We had the remarkable good fortune to spend a few moments with the founder - a remarkable man with a great passion for the world he’s created. Highly recommended…

Sanctuary, sculptures, ancient forest
Aug. 2021 • Couples
An oasis in the city. Meditative, peaceful acres of sculptures representing various spiritual traditions harmoniously placed in a forested ravine, with ancient trees, pools, brooks… absolutely enchantingly and artistically beautiful .
Paths are wide and well maintained. Near the entrance is a children’s play area, washrooms and picnic tables. Parking is free.
If you have an hour or more and want to unwind in a peaceful nature setting that express the unity and harmonious inviting the soul to enliven, this is your place.

Tranquility for the Soul
Jul. 2021 • Family
Spent the afternoon there with family. It is truly a beautiful place. We loved walking the trails and seeing all the different sculptures. We enjoyed it so much we did the trail twice. Plan to return for yoga and other events that they host on-site. Highly recommend this venue for a day unlike others.
