Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden stands alone as a breathtaking, one-of-a-kind venue in Vancouver
Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden brings to life arts, culture, philosophies, and architecture of Ming Dynasty scholar-officials, who created these garden-homes to reflect natural beauty, harmonious life, and quiet joy. These gardens were always the sites of friends and family gatherings celebrating life’s milestones and designed to be enjoyed in all weather. The covered walkways and pavilions offer protection in case of rain with the sound of drops falling from the roof tiles adding another special dimension to your experience in the Garden. When the sun is shining, guests can explore all the and ginkgo trees.
