Central Park Labyrinth

Central Park Labyrinth
Justine Giuliani, 2005
Coloured concrete

Central Park Labyrinth is an eleven-circuit labyrinth patterned after the labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral in France. The labyrinth is made from concrete with a pattern added to the surface with burnt sienna coloured concrete. Located in the northeast corner of Central Park across from the Rotary Youth Centre, Central Park Labyrinth is the first wheelchair accessible labyrinth in Canada. A labyrinth is an ancient geometric pattern that has just one path that leads into the centre and back out again. Not to be confused with a maze, a labyrinth is based on a circle, the ancient symbol for healing, unity and wholeness. Walking the labyrinth involves the creative and intuitive mind and can be calming and balancing.
