Reflections, Pavilions and Intricate Stonework


The Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden (and its neighboring park) can be found in the heart of Vancouver's Chinatown. In addition to gardens in Portland, Oregon and Dunedin, New Zealand this Vancouver garden was the first of only three outside of China that was modeled after the Ming Dynasty Gardens. Don't miss walking along the covered walkways, noticing the details of the intricate stone patio designs, admiring the pavilions and capturing reflections in the jade green pond.

Where is your favorite public garden?

We loved our walk through both the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden (and neighboring park) found in Vancouver's Chinatown. We've now visited two of the three worldwide Ming Dynasty style Gardens located in places other than China.

Fun fact: The Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Park is a free alternative to its next door neighbor. Although you can't walk along the covered walkways nor get up close to the larger pavilions, you can get a distant view and save a little money on entrance fees!

Do you have a favorite garden?
