The Trails of Tapovan

All begin with peace.

All the 200 acres of trails in the park were built and are maintained by the Galiano Trail Society.  The 220 stone staircase was built by master trail builder Rene Zilch.  All the trails are named “peace” in different languages from around the world.  Displayed along the trails of Tapovan is a unique permanent exhibition of fifty of Sri Chinmoy’s aphorisms.  The aphorisms were selected by well-wishers of the Park and installed to celebrate the fiftieth jubilee year of Sri Chinmoy’s arrival in American (1964).


“O dreamers of peace, come,

    Let us walk together.

O lovers of peace, come,

   Let us run together.

O servers of peace, come,

   Let us grow together.”

Sri Chinmoy
