The Labyrinth at LEAF
Frontier Park | Erie, PA
In 2005 the Carrie T. Watson Garden Club donated The Labyrinth to the Lake Erie Arboretum at Frontier (LEAF) to commemorate our 80th anniversary.
The labyrinth was chosen for its beauty of form, its longevity, and its meditative and restorative benefits. Labyrinth walking has shown to be effective in relieving stress, lowering blood pressure, and reducing anxiety. Peace of mind found walking the path in the fresh air and sunshine, smelling the grass, hearing bird song, all contribute to an ability to react to life with greater calm, compassion, and creativity.
Since its creation, the labyrinth has been in constant use. Church groups, garden clubs, elementary and high school students, university students, and individuals from all walks of life have discovered the joys of walking the labyrinth in the beautiful setting of LEAF.
