On October 30, 2018, 9:45am The Hills Garden Club (HGCW) of Wellesley and the Town of Wellesley will celebrate the completion of a landscape labyrinth at Elm Park, known in Wellesley as the “Clock Tower Park” on Washington Street. Years in the planning and construction, the labyrinth is a joint project, funded by HGCW. Town landscape planner Cricket Vlass conceived the project and its design, in consultation with the NRC and the garden club.
The structure, made of large gray granite cobbles, is located on the west side of the park close to a park entrance on Washington Street. Of the numerous shapes for labyrinth designs, the garden club and the town chose a ‘Seven Circuit Classical – Modified’, 35’ in diameter. The design embraces an interweaving of stone and grass within the existing ground plane, creating a contemplative, low-maintenance space.
Vlass will be on hand for the dedication, along with members of the garden club, invited NRC guests, and DPW staff, who constructed the labyrinth, and dealt with challenging and ever-changing weather conditions.
The rain date for this event is Tue. Nov 6, 2018.
