Chalk Labyrinths – Central Playground – Chinguacousy Park – Brampton

Saturday Afternoon spent chalking three Labyrinths in and around the Central Playground of Brampton’s Chinguacousy Park. I was so focused on making the Labyrinths, I only took a few photographs. And altogether forgot to take any photographs of my third Labyrinth, a pass-through baltic design closer to the spray pad area. It was that time […]

“Supposedly back in the Viking days there were many of these rock mazes by sea shores to trap evil spirits…” – Kirsi Rebekka Halme – Vikingeskibsmuseet i Roskilde, Denmark

The Lines I paint in Toronto’s Wading Pools then double-purpose the Wading Pools into Labyrinths, which then triple-purposes them as Bike-Riding teaching spaces. Though this Labyrinth I re-painted in East Vancouver […]

It’s Care-Free Weekend in North Vancouver! Just found out about it at the last minute and found my way there… Very much a Pedestrian Sundays Vibe with a GIANT Waterslide running downhill. Found an empty intersection and chalked a late-in-the-day Labyrinth.

I visited Glen Park, in an East Vancouver Neighbourhood I was familiar with back when I was here in 1996. Encountering such a huge wide patch of asphalt was too tempting to leave alone. Out popped the chalk, up sprang a Labyrinth, round and round the children ran.
