Opening on World Labyrinth Day, May 2nd 2015, the Elgee Park Labyrinth, created by artist Simon Normand, is dedicated to the Boonwurrung people of the Mornington Peninsula, and the men from the Peninsula who fought in World War I, 1914 – 1918.
Walking a labyrinth is an ancient meditative tradition. It is a centuries old ritual practiced by pilgrims all over the world. Labyrinths are places of contemplation and renewal. A labyrinth walk can help us to reconnect with ourselves and the world that surrounds us: It integrates the mind, body and spirit. The walk to the centre and out of the Elgee Park Labyrinth is over 250 metres.
At this unique site, it is possible to view both the sunrise and the sunset. Here we can take time to reflect upon the cycle of life, the passing of time, loss and renewal.
