The Maze was created in Ngataringa Park in 1994 to represent the unique interweaving between Maori and Celtic cultures, which are so much a part of New Zealand. Maori motifs and spirals are incorporated into circular ring mazes of ancient European origin, and built up into three dimensions with stone, brick, and hedge plantings of trees and shrubs. White crushed shell ground cover provides material and color contrast, and large driftwoods are used effectively for sculpture and seating. Along with the memorial avenue of trees commemorating World War Two veterans, it is a very pleasant spot for a gentle walk.
