Govans Presbyterian Church provides an accessible outdoor seven-circuit labyrinth that is open and available to both the church and the community on a year-round basis. The labyrinth is constructed from natural and living materials, and is part of the church’s effort to establish “holy space” in the midst of the surrounding city. The church often holds memorial labyrinth walks, and several local self-help groups use this space on a regular basis.

    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.
