This is the entrance to Path of Life Garden. The outdoor outfitting company can also put you on the river in a kayak, raft, or tube. Enjoy a float down the Connecticut River, camp in a tepee, or go dogsledding and snowshoeing in winter. Adventures and lessons are available year-round for individuals, families, or groups, and for all ages and abilities.
Walk through the 14-acre garden and explore the large-scale works of art that tell the story of the Circle of Life.
Just across from the sculptures, Sustainable Farmer sells local artisan products with an emphasis on farmers who focus on sustainability. Outside, pizza is served from the wood-fired oven. Inside, find local cheeses, preserves, honey, maple syrup, and wines, plus body care products crafted on Vermont farms.
Behind the Sustainable Farmer, enjoy samples of artisan and specialty cheeses from Vermont Farmstead Cheese.
Next door, past the games of badminton and beanbag toss, is the Harpoon Riverbend Taps and Beer Garden, with a full selection of Harpoon beers straight from the source and delicious food to pair with a pint. Enjoy guided tours of the brewery on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Across the park from the brewery, visit the “True to the Spirit” creative group of Vermonters who love the process of crafting award-winning vodka, gin, and whiskey.
Just around the bend, watch master glassblowers and potters. An extensive assortment of Simon Pearce second-quality glass and pottery is available alongside first-quality pieces.
Enjoy your visit!
