Centennial Park has put the privately funded sandstone Labyrinth at the forefront of their plans to revitalise the parklands, the Sydney Morning Herald reports…
Things are going well with preparations for the construction of Australia’s first sandstone labyrinth and it looks like it will be completed early next year. This is a surprisingly complex thing to build – with over 1500 individual pieces of stone, every detail needs to be perfectly aligned for it to work. The good people at Centennial Parklands are ensuring that it will be on a par with the other significant stone labyrinths in the world – the one at the Chartres Cathedral in France and the one at the Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. In the meantime, before construction actually begins, there will still be a labyrinth painted onto the field for you to walk.
Is this Labyrinth the same size as the one on the grounds of Westmead Childrens’ Hospital, Sydney?
Yes. Like the Westmead labyrinth it will be a replica of the medieval labyrinth in the Chartres Cathedral – same size and design.
