De. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, Vancouver BC

Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden provides the visitor with beautiful architecture and the opportunity to sit and enjoy the stillness of the garden. Built between 1985-1986, it was opened in time to celebrate Expo 86 in Vancouver. Dr. Sun Yat-Sen, whom the park area is named after, was a leader known as the “father of modern China” and the first president of the Republic of China. The garden has been planted with a wide variety of trees and flowers that blossom throughout the seasons, especially in the springtime. There is also the use of both feng shui and Taoism throughout the grounds to bring a sense of harmony and balance to the area. Trees, rocks, and objects have been carefully placed to both conceal and reveal the gardens and buildings around them. Make sure and enjoy these gardens on your next trip to Vancouver.
