Heard about this from a friend and stopped on the way home from the Poconos one Sunday afternoon. You can plan on a good half an hour to an hour to walk around and enjoy yourself. Lots of different paths you can take. You can...More

Columcille is a beautiful, quiet place. The chapel and bell tower are definitely places you'll want to visit, and there are more amazing things to discover as you slowly meander along the winding paths. There are also plenty of places to just sit and meditate....More

Since this park celebrates and imitates the standing stones of Celtic lands, it feels like taking a trip to another country in another time. In fact, the place seems timeless and mesmerizing. Check out the chapel with its delightful echo. NOTE: please be very respectful...More

This is a nice place to stroll through the woods and see the stonework. We learned about this little park from friends, and we'll be back in the spring to see wildflowers.

First entered the property and saw that there was a house and this was a private residence. Kind of felt like we were intruding. About 10 minutes later saw another couple walking around so we felt more comfortable exploring. It was very quiet and peaceful...More

There is so much to say about this mystical little park. Very peaceful and quiet, with rustic trails and unbelievable stone buildings and monuments. It covers about 17 acres and what I liked about the park was you did not have to back track on...More

We were looking for a day trip close to home. I never knew it existed until the day we went. Just as we arrived a large tree on just off the path fell which cause quite a commotion. After that we walked the beautiful paths...More

This place is glorious. Welcome to a Celtic / Anglo-Saxon view of life. The stones are CAIRNS to the heart, the soul, the spirit, the past and the earth. Great place to amble, sit, meditate, photograph, and just be. Take friends!!!

Walked around here after visiting nearby Camelbeach. The grounds are nothing short of magical. Stop in the chapel to pick up a map. Find the somewhat hidden Labyrinth to walk/meditate. Sit on a bench in the shade and take in the peaceful scenery.

The parking is outside the perimeter of the park close to the front gates. It's a small privately owned park, there is no real parking lot. Think of parking on someone's property outside their property. It's a wonderful... More
