“Soaking up summer 😎” – Wading Pool Labyrinth – Christie Pits Park – Toronto

In the now removed wading pool in Bellevue Square Park, I had painted the concentric circles of that Labyrinth in a wavy twisty style.

The idea was to mimic the look of the Labyrinth under water, for when the wading pool was water-free, which was most of the year.

It didn’t work out so well visually, and walkably, without the water.

I never painted another Labyrinth like that again.

The arcs of my Wading Pool Labyrinth appear wavy in Christie Pits Park, that’s the water doing that.

The Labyrinth here is indeed comprised of concentric circles.
