LABYRINTH PARK, stained concrete, wood, metal, stone, 49 diameter with 7 circular center

Labyrinths have been used for thousands of years on every continent, in every culture and in most systems of religious belief as a tool for meditation, spirituality and the journey towards wholeness. Currently labyrinths are experiencing a revival because of their simple holistic effects and documented success in helping to empower patients. They also provide a unique space for health care professionals to ‘decompress’ and regroup.

The design is a classical labyrinth comprised of a circle in its center surrounded by seven circuits, or turns. Labyrinths can be seen as symbols for wholeness and unity related to the cycles of life, the cosmos and the seasons. The labyrinth entrance is located near the fountain offering walkers the benefit of starting and finishing in front of the sound and sight of falling water. The labyrinth is handicap accessible and will include a finger labyrinth for the visually impaired.
