Named the World’s Top City Garden by National Geographic, Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden is the first classical Chinese Garden in all of Canada!
It is the perfect place to visit year-round, with covered walkways and beautiful pavilions protecting you from Vancouver’s famous rainforest conditions! The jade green pond, koi fish, collection of 150-year old miniature trees and tai hu rock imported from China, are some of the delights the Garden offers. Built in 1986 by fifty-three master craftsmen from China and 950 crates of traditional material, it was constructed using 14th century methods - no glue, screws or power tools were used.
The Garden offers free guided tours and traditional Chinese tea as well as one of a kind finds at the Eight Treasures Shop.
It is wheelchair accessible and family friendly (entry includes a scavenger hunt for children!)
