Meditating within the Labyrinth at Sholom Park
Sholom Park, located west of downtown Ocala, was built some years ago by a private developer. A woman by name of Sandra Friend writes that it "is a ... passive park with a special air of tranquility. The landscape is designed as a series of ten distinct outdoor rooms, each evoking a different set of senses. The central pond is especially popular thanks to the school of koi that gather to be fed. This is a destination for weddings, which you’ll encounter almost every weekend. One of our friends chose to be married within the Labyrinth, a winding walkway with reminders for thankfulness and contemplation. In all, you can walk more than a mile along the paved pathways, or find a bench in a quiet nook and enjoy reading a book or writing in your journal."
I shall be posting additional pictures of Sholom Park in the future.
