Labyrinth offers chance for residents to escape
THE word labyrinth generally conjures up the image of being lost within a deep, dark, twisting maze.
Fortunately, the labyrinth installed in Brassall's Vi Jordan Park isn't nearly as sinister.
It's actually designed to be a place of calm and focus.
The Ipswich Council project, which was established earlier this month, has become a feature of the Bottomley St park.
ICC Infrastructure Committee chairwoman Cr Cheryl Bromage said labyrinths were a tool for personal, psychological and spiritual transformation.
"They have been used historically both in group ritual and for private meditation," she said.
"Now it's Ipswich's turn to access the properties which they are said to possess."
