Labyrinths have been used for more than 3,000 years and can be found on nearly every continent. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth has only one path that leads you to the centre of the design which in this case features the Bowring Park logo engraved in granite. The path invites you to take a short journey. There are no tricks to using it and no dead ends.
You might use the labyrinth in remembrance, to celebrate, or to focus on a problem. You may travel alone or with a companion(s). You may use it for peace, inspiration, or relaxation; for solace, consolation, fun or exercise. Whatever the reason, experiencing the labyrinth may stimulate the relaxation response which helps ease stress.
The Labyrinth in Bowring Park was officially opened on October 8th, 2021. It is based on the Chartres Cathedral labyrinth located about 80 km (50 mi) southwest of Paris, France. Built in the 12th Century, the Chartres Cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The Grand Concourse Authority is proud to be a part of this very worthwhile project.
In 2014, the Grand Concourse Authority began development of a 2.7km walk around Adam’s in the town of Paradise. Constructed in phases and completed in 2020, the trail boasts a easy grade suitable for all walkers, strollers and wheelchairs alike. Amenities include a tot playground, bench seating along the trail and a public access wharf. You can access the trail from Lanark Drive to the south, east and west of the pond and from Archibald Drive to the north.
