5603 Hilltop Road, Jamestown is just a little way from Guilford College Road.
They have a nice, big, sunny parking lot.
There’s a kind of driveway/minister’s parking spot to the right of the buildings. And a very nice flower garden between that and HIlltop Road.
The labyrinth is right behind the building. It’s paint on pavers.
And it’s kind of odd. It has 2 entrances/exits. You can walk straight in on the right, turn around and walk straight out. Or you can go in on the left and have a more usual winding, Cretan-type path. And you can walk back the same way. Or you can go in one way and out the other.
There is a bench for contemplation, flowers, and a surprising lack of traffic noise considering the proximity of the road.
This is right between 2 athletic stadiums, in a very public place and it is gorgeous.
The labyrinth is beautifully maintained, easy to get to and easy to find. The entire park is gorgeous and worth a visit.
The Unity Church of Charleston on Leeds Avenue has a lovely Cretan labyrinth to the left of the sanctuary.
To my amazement, it is made of grass.
There are little handmade and decorated pavers kind of scattered around and each corner acknowledges the 4 classical elements. (I particularly love the empty birdcage in the Air corner.)
There is a swing between Fire and Air for post-walk contemplation.
The parking lot doesn’t go all the way around the building. So, park where you find a convenient spot as you come into the parking lot. The church is on a fairly busy corner. But, it is far enough back from the road that I didn’t find the traffic sounds distracting.
