The ‘Wrapped Snoopy House’ is a life-sized doghouse wrapped in polyethylene, tarpaulin, and ropes that were created and presented to Jean Schulz by artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude after Schulz paid tribute to them in one of his 1978 Peanuts comic strips.
The Snoopy Labyrinth is a labyrinth created in the shape of Snoopy’s head to celebrate the love of Peanuts. Designed to encourage a connection with nature, the maze takes visitors on a journey of self-discovery through a network of pathways that begin at the base of Snoopy’s neck and end in Snoopy’s ear.
