THE GARDEN IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Garden Private Events
Due to the recently updated Public Health Orders by Dr. Bonnie Henry dated December 21st 2021, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our tea club. At this point, we are only accepting private bookings to ensure the safety of our visitors, staff and everyone involved continues to be our key priority during these uncertain and ever-changing times. We want to thank everyone who has joined us and promise to come back as soon as possible to continue to share the traditions, rituals and conversations around tea.
For more information please contact us at email@example.com
Proof of Vaccination Requirement
After reviewing the Provincial Health Orders and taking into consideration the Garden is a 70% outdoor/30% indoor venue- we will NOT be requiring proof of vaccine (vaccination card).
Only participants in indoor rental events of 50 or more participants, and some in-person programming will be required to show proof of vaccination.
Because the safety and well-being of our staff and visitors is and always has been our priority, we will keep monitoring all Public Health Orders updates and will act accordingly.
NEW SAFETY PROTOCOLS
We’ve made a few changes to ensure you can safely enjoy your visit:
- We are offering time-slot based tickets that can be booked in advance.
- The Garden’s primary entrance has been relocated to Keefer and Carrall St, right across from S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Simon K.Y. Lee Senior Care Home.
- Face coverings are recommended for the protection of yourself and others, unless you are exempt.
- Please be considerate to other visitors and staff.

Before purchasing tickets, carefully review your event and ticket selection information. Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden does not allow refunds for unclaimed or unused tickets.
