Where is the labyrinth located?
On one full acre of agricultural land in Hawaiian Paradise Park (HPP) on the Big Island of Hawai‘i. The only buildings currently on site are a gazebo accommodating around 12 people comfortably, and, on the road in front, a Little Free Library. There’s a fish pond in the center, too. Google Map link.
How is the labyrinth currently being used?
The labyrinth is a wonderful neighborhood resource adored by locals and tourists alike. It gained much in popularity during the Pandemic as a safe place to enjoy nature, especially by families. It is open 24/7 for all to come and enjoy. Google Maps page so far has over 300,000 views.
The labyrinth hosts occasional events, such as group walks, small outdoor concerts, singalongs, art workshops, solstice celebrations, even a couple of weddings! As for how you, as the new owner, may choose to use this space is entirely up to you.
A little history?
Based on the classic Chartres Cathedral 11-rank design —though double the size at 90 feet across— ’Awapuhi Labyrinth was built by Christie Wolf starting in 1999 with the help of her husband John Luchau. Ownership changed in 2018. The current owner is Deborah Masterson .
What is the neighborhood like? How about the zoning?
HPP is a rural subdivision located 12 miles east of Hilo comprised of 1-acre lots zoned for agriculture or residence. There is plenty of space on the property to build your dreams, be it a private home, retreat or meditation center, or use your imagination. For a flavor of the place, check out this HPP Facebook page.
