Labyrinths have a single path leading to the central goal and are thought to be more than 5,000 years old. They are found throughout the world and have been used in schools, hospitals, office complexes, and public parks. Following the pattern of the labyrinth can be used for stress relief, reflection, and enjoyment.
The UNLV Campus Labyrinth was made possible by a generous gift from an anonymous donor. Students from the Landscape Architecture program, in conjunction with J.W. Zunino Landscape Architecture, created the design ideas pictured here. Students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents/families, and community members are invited to provide input on the designs using this survey link.
