“Beating this summer heat by swimming in the pool 🌊☀️ We had tons of fun spending time with our family today ❤” — Wading Pool Labyrinth — Riverdale Park West — Toronto

This time of year, Summer, Wading Pool Labyrinths are more wading pool to keep cool, than they are Labyrinths for walking. Happy to see my blue painted lines are still visible enough to keep my Labyrinth walkable. This one is located near the entrance to the Riverdale Farm, in Riverdale Park West in Toronto’s Cabbagetown […]

“More of these please. 🏃🏾 ” – Matt Galloway – Toronto

The earlier replies to this tweet assumes Matt meant more Water Fountains.

Ice water temperatures in the Wading Pool in Christie Pits Park in Toronto. Appreciate these images as I can see how the colours of the concentric circles of my Wading Pool Labyrinth are doing. The purples are okay, yet the Red ones, which were closer to Orange when last I re-painted them, really needs refreshing. […]

Among my signatures in the Labyrinths I design and make, are empty canvas spaces created in-between the turn-arounds. Often in those canvas spaces, I draw or chalk or paint a smaller Labyrinth design inside. In my online and real life Labyrinth journeys, I have only ever encountered two or maybe three instances that someone else […]
