I made a quick maintenance visit to the Vancouver Public Labyrinth.

Found only a few stones were out of place and easily re-positioned them back into place.

While walking it this evening, I observed a higher than usual amount of goose poop along the path.

Now I know why!

World Labyrinth Day 2018: Vancouver City of Labyrinths Project – Jane’s Walk

World Labyrinth Day 2018 – Vancouver City of Labyrinths Project – Jane’s Walk

Start Location : Abandoned Olympic Village LRT Station Platform, North end Olympic Village Canada Line Train Station Parking Lot.

When : Saturday May 5 2018 at 4:30 p.m.

This 90 minute Jane’s Walk will celebrate ” World Labyrinth Day ” and share why and how Vancouver is becoming a “City of Labyrinths”.

Walk includes visits to:

  • Spyglass Place Labyrinth
  • Recently completed “Vancouver Public Labyrinth” by False Creek
  • A small Labyrinth beside Olympic Village.

History, purpose, and benefits of Labyrinth Walking will be shared.

How Labyrinths can be both Fun as well as ‘Giant Outstallation Art‘.

We will explain how Labyrinths have been used in designing cities for thousands of years(!).

This walk will decode TOAD – Temporary Obsolete Abandoned Derelict – urban infrastructure and how Labyrinths are excellent examples of Urban Acupuncture, Tactical Urbanism and Placemaking.

Did you know Jane Jacobs herself was influenced by Labyrinths in her writings about cities?

Join this Jane’s Walk and you will learn how!

Time permitting: using chalk on paved open space, people will be instructed in how to make their own Labyrinths, which we will then enjoy walking into and out of.

A limited number of printed materials will be available on a first-come first-served basis as keepsakes of this Jane’s Walk.

Coinciding with Jane’s Walk weekend, The Labyrinth Society has declared the first Saturday in May, World Labyrinth Day. This Vancouver Jane’s Walk is one of a number of global events marking the day.

“How long did it take to build this… and how long will it last before someone destroys it?” – Kelvin Won – Vancouver Public Labyrinth

Answers…

I began building “Vancouver Public Labyrinth” on March 25 2018, one month plus a day ago.

Answer to the second and third parts of the question…

I don’t know, hopefully for a long, long, long time; and no one ever does.

“If you can see your path laid out before you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.” – Joseph Campbell – Vancouver Public Labyrinth

“If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path.
Your own path you make with every step you take.
That’s why it’s your path.”

“My new post-dinner pastime … watching locals doing touristy things; like walking round-and-round in this Labyrinth, located just at the base of Habitat Island (False Creek). Cheaper than a movie ticket and nearly the same entertainment value.” – Vancouver Public Labyrinth
