Retired schoolteacher Barb Robertson first saw a labyrinth garden in Montana. She was so impressed that she decided to build a labyrinth garden in her own hometown, West Bend, Wisconsin. After gathering a few grants to get started, permission from the city and a core of dedicated volunteers, the West Bend Labyrinth Garden Earth Sculpture became a reality.

Found in many different countries and cultures labyrinths have been created for centuries. Unlike a maze with false turns and dead ends, a labyrinth is a pattern that contains a single pathway that turns back on itself at least once before leading to the center. The reasons for the use of the labyrinth in the past are elusive, but today’s applications are geared toward the health of the mind, spirit and body; walking the labyrinth acts as a moving meditation, often relaxing even to those that cannot sit still."

I came to waymark the peace pole standing watch nearby, but was happy to also find this labyrinth.
