Set around a large tamarind tree, the newly established Labyrinth Park in Bandung's City Hall area has become one of the latest attractions to visit in the West Java capital.

As the name suggests, the park consists of granite-floored paths that seem endless with only four exits available. It is located near the office Ridwan Kamil, the city's popular mayor.

“Esthetical and ecological were [the park’s] initial concepts,” the head of the city's public and supply agency, Dadang Dharmawan, told kompas.com.

As a public space, the park also provides a social function as visitors can access the park's central area by running or simply strolling while marveling at the surroundings. Dadang added that it took 90 days to build the place. In the near future, the area will also host a new children's pool park that is currently under construction. (kes)
