Confederation Park Playground Labyrinth – Burnaby, B.C.

Exploring East Vancouver, I walked far enough east along Hastings Avenue, passing Boundary Road and wound up in Burnaby.

Exploring side streets introduced me to Confederation Park. It’s huge and Multi-Purpose.

Found an empty spot of asphalt in the middle of a playground. Took my time with measurements and the result was a nice 11 Lane Chalk Labyrinth.

Was told it’s an Italian Neighbourhood, however seven children from two French speaking families kept hanging around me whilst I was making the Labyrinth.

Initially felt this was a Francophone neighbourhood. Not unlike the feeling I got when hanging out Vanier, the French speaking pocket of Ottawa.

It was HOT today, I am so thankful for working water fountains, both to re-hydrate and to wash my post-chalk-Labyrinth-making powdered hands.

Kids kept asking if this was the only day I was here to make the Labyrinth. “Yeah”, I told them. That answer made them sad.

Now I have to go back… and maybe next time I’ll bring along some paint and a brush or two.
