Labyrinth

The labyrinth in City Park is available for use from 7 a.m. until dark. Located directly behind the golf pro shop, the labyrinth should be used for meditation and relaxation only. Passers-by should be quiet and respect those using the labyrinth. Walking the labyrinth can promote internal balance and relaxation. Before walking the labyrinth, one should pause at the entrance to quiet the mind. If others are on the labyrinth, it is custom to allow those in front the opportunity to finish their walk.
