Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Chinese Gardens
Named the World’s Top City Garden by National Geographic, Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden is the first and only classical Chinese garden in all of Canada! Covered walkways and beautiful pavilions protect guests from Vancouver’s famous rainforest conditions and make it the perfect place to visit year round! 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 53 master craftsmen from China and with 950 crates of traditional material, it was constructed using 14th century methods – without glue, screws or power tools. The Garden offers free guided tours and traditional Chinese tea as well as one-of-a-kind finds at the Eight Treasures Shop.
