“The project that started it all” – Inspiration Point. 1996 marked the first official TKF Sacred Space with a signature bench and journal, located at The Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s Headquarters in Annapolis, Maryland. A long path canopied by vibrant trees, plants and flowers, leads to a destination point overlooking one of the many back creeks on the Chesapeake Bay. While sitting on the inviting bench, the only noises are the rustling of deer, fox and squirrels in the surrounding woods, and the buzzing of insects enjoying the green space. Even after just a short time in the space, one forgets about the daily tasks and to-do lists, and upon leaving, the path allows one to slowly come back to the world.

    About Us

    We are a private nonprofit that supports, informs, and inspires the creation of publicly accessible urban green spaces. We believe that every city resident needs nearby green space to provide opportunities for mindfulness, respite, and renewal. The Foundation has issued its final grants to build five Open Spaces Sacred Places and research the impacts on a variety of users with the hope that the powerful connection between nature, spirit and human wellbeing will be scientifically proven.
