The Welcome Center at the Otto Labyrinth Park
Find Sanctuary at the Otto Labyrinth Park. The definitions of sanctuary are: 1. a consecrated place where sacred objects are kept. and 2. refuge: a shelter from danger or hardship. We offer you both at the Otto Labyrinth Park & Welcome Center, sitting across the ponds from the Park. Shop our Welcome Center Gift store, located at the Otto Labyrint Park in Otto, North Carolina
The Welcome Center is open in the afternoons, Wednesdays through Saturdays.

Visit the Labyrinth Park, Open dawn to dusk every day!
The Otto Labyrinth Park was open to the public in April 1998. It is made of 10 tons of stone and sits in a high energy spot with a creek on two sides, a pond on the third and a hillside of mountain laurel above. Information and Directions
Mountain Valley Center & The Otto Labyrinth Park
43 Shambala Way
Otto, NC 28763.
Phone Toll Free 888-773-2491
The labyrinth is open dawn to dusk. After hour activities must be arranged in advance at Mountain Valley Center. Guided tours of the labyrinth and special group activities must be arranged in advance.
We have established a non-profit organization to facilitate development of facilities at the Labyrinth. Plans include building a "screen house" with restrooms and a fireplace just beyond the pond. Plans have also been drawn up for building several cabins in the woods to accommodate visitors on site. If you would like to help us fulfill these plans by making a tax deductible contribution to the Otto Labyrinth Park Fund.
