Activities


Labyrinth On Site
Labyrinth 45 ft labyrinth at 17 Second St. The ancient practice of “Circling to the Center” involves entering to the left and following the path to the center. The same path is used to return to the outside. The center is a beautiful piece of amethyst and barite from a local mine. For many walkers the labyrinth becomes a metaphor for the journey for life; for other walkers it is simply an opportunity for fun and exercise.
