“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We chanced upon this while talking a walk not too far from our hotel, and it's a splendid, peaceful place to walk through and read the lyrics to Denver's major songs imprinted on different rocks. Be sure to explore the site, though; we saw several people unitentionally miss about half the exhibit. The overall park setting (along a small river) in which this "sanctuary" is located is lovely.

“Serene”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

A walk around a park. John Denver songs engraved in rocks. This was a nice park. There were many people picnicking or just relaxing on the lawns. There's a river the dogs were enjoying. A good place to meditate.

“Peaceful and tranquil”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

This area has been a few years in the making. The flowers, water features and rocks add up to a lovely place to picnic or just sit quietly and meditate on nature's beauty.

“Quiet gardens along a creek.”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

It was nice seeing some of his songs inscribed on boulders along with other author's writings. The flowers were beautiful and well kept.

“Peaceful!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

What a beautifully peaceful place! And even more so since it has been expanded. Waterfalls, wildflowers, and engraved rocks are the perfect backdrop for a place to 'just be'!
