Directions to the Spanish Banks Labyrinth location
These pictures are of the location I use to draw at Spanish Banks. Please refer to them when reading the directions below. You may also wish to Google "Spanish Banks, Vancouver BC map" for a map.
From 4th Avenue, turn right onto and follow North West Marine Drive, past Locarno Beach Cafe, until you reach the Spanish Banks East Cafe. Walk to the circular patio overlooking the beach, in front of the Spanish Banks East Cafe. Facing the water (with the cafe at your back) look to your left, in the distance, for a line of rocks that extends from the dry, sandy part of the beach down to the wet sand. Walk from the patio to the end of the line of rocks and look for a path made in the wet sand, with a rake, that leads away from that location. Follow the path to the labyrinth.

- walking a labyrinth
- This Blog is for people looking for an outdoor labyrinth to walk in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. These Events are outdoors, on the foreshore of the ocean, so they are weather permitting events. Please check my Blog for Event day confirmation when weather might be an issue. Walking a Labyrinth is like accepting an invitation to pray, meditate, contemplate, dream, celebrate or play; a place to find inspiration, satisfy a curiosity, examine metaphor, mythology or simply, a place to explore liminal space: a 'betwixt and between' place. . . Labyrinths are drawn on the foreshore, betwixt the nearshore and the backshore, between the low and high water marks to present liminal space as a physical location. Labyrinths may also be drawn during liminal time: dusk or dawn and/or solstice or equinox. Victor W Turner has described liminality as "a fructile chaos, a storehouse of possibilities, not a random assemblage but a striving after new forms and structures, a gestation process." My vision is that when you walk a labyrinth on the foreshore, you will access liminal space. For information please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
