Summer Schedule for 2021 is Posted
The intention of Circles in the Sand is to share love, joy and kindness. Team Circles will be creating a sandy path surrounded by intricate designs and artwork for everyone to enjoy a walk on the sand.
The path is physically distanced as it meanders through the labyrinth with no wrong turns or dead ends.
What to expect when you visit with Circles in the Sand
Scheduled walk time on the schedule is when the larger labyrinth should be complete and available to walk. Drawing starts about 2 hours before the walk times.
Circles staff will help in group physical distancing at the beginning of the walk and be available to answer questions each morning. We will be trying new things - so bear with us. Check out the recent blog post for more details.
Be aware of all posted signs in the State Park. Some areas along the road have new "No Parking" signs and we ask they you respect those signs and the local residents who live on the Beach Loop Road. Thanks!

Circles in the Sand
Circles in the Sand was created in 2011 by labyrinth artist Denny Dyke. In the early years it was not uncommon to see mentions of "crop circles" or "alien art" after his work was found on the sand. His first intention was to create labyrinths so that everyone could enjoy a walk on the sand.
