Long Description:
Kenneth E. Smith Memorial Labyrinth
Hawthorn Park
6067 E. Old Maple Avenue

The Kenneth E. Smith Memorial Labyrinth is located in Hawthorn Park immediately south of Dogwood Shelter. The labyrinth completed in 2003 is an 80 foot diameter circle constructed out of aggregate mix concrete. It is patterned after the labyrinth laid in the floor of the Chartres Cathedral in France around 1220 A.D. There are 34 turns on the path going to the center. The path is 30" wide with 6" in-between allowing wheelchairs or walkers to be used. A meditation garden surrounds the labyrinth. A comfortable swing, benches, a babbling water fountain, rose bushes, trees, and shrubs create a quiet space and blend into the park proper.

Mrs. Lavern Smith donated the major part of the funding for this project in memory of her late husband, Kenneth E. Smith, who died in May 2000.
