    Silent and Peaceful
    The energy and silence here was sacred. One could feel that very person there respected one another, which added to the feeling of peace. The trails were easy to moderate, the statues and medicine wheel were powerful and sacred, too. I could have stayed there all-day basking in the positive almost holy energy at this stupa.

    Spiritual place
    This was an interesting spot, definitely spiritual. We spent about an hour here just wondering around. We walked around The Medicine Wheel and stopped at each of the 4 compass points taking our time at each point. Remember to be respectful and only enter one at a time.

    Peaceful and spiritual.
    No matter your religious affiliation, this is an inspiring and spiritual place. The trail, while short, could be difficult for some people to navigate. The stupa, the prayer flags, the bells, and the medicine wheel are all something I did not expect to see in the middle of Sedona. (Then again, why not?!)

    1st stop in Sedona approved
    This was our morning intro to Sedona. Saw a javelina, took a quiet walk and enjoyed sooo many different birds. I could've come back every morning for a walk. Only downside was they didn't open until 8:30.

    Peaceful experience
    This lovely park is a special place. It's so spiritual. My friends and I walked along the paths and enjoyed a beautiful early morning there. We were the only visitors at that time. Tons of birds due to the multiple bird feeders. Learned more about the Buddhist faith from reading the signage. Definitely worth a visit for everyone of all faiths.

This is a must stop while in Sedona. You can feel tranquility once you enter and walk through the park. The Hummingbirds were busy giving us a show in mid June and there are areas to sit and just take it all in.

Beautiful site with great ambiance, well worth a visit. Path from parking area not easy for those with any balance or walking difficulty

We were humbled by the power of the place. Three energies converged upon us: the Buddhist, the Native American, and Sedona's own special energy as well. Don't forget to visit the Medicine Wheel to the left of the Buddhist area. Will go again!

Ended up visiting a couple of times due to its peaceful beauty. Ended up finding multiple walking trails within the park.

Very spiritual and enlightening experience. Best to visit with a guide. It is not just a place to visit, its an experience.
