Everhart Park in West Chester has added another way to enjoy taking a walk outside with a new labyrinth, writes Bill Rettew for the Daily Local News.

Volunteers from the Friends of Everhart Park worked hard on Friday to place about seven tons of recycled Belgian Block that had previously been used to pave streets into a pattern of a new labyrinth in the southwest corner of the park.

The new addition features seven circuits and measures 66 by 55 feet. The grass pathways separated by the stone slow down visitors and can facilitate meditation, said Friends member Susan Frens.

“You love it – just to relax – or maybe you have a problem to work out slowly,” said Frens. “Everyone can get something different out of it.”

The labyrinth can also be used by kids to play in it.

“We are making more passive activities in the park for families and walkers,” said Frens’s husband, Dale.

The Friends of Everhart Park were able to build the labyrinth thanks to memorial donations from the friends and family of park lover Vernon Brewer.
