Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden



World Top City Garden by National Geographic

“Breathtaking, rain or shine… Step into our door and out of your daily life as your heart and mind relax and energy renews. Journey back in time to 15th Century China and enjoy this “window to another world”.

The Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, the first of its kind outside of China, is an authentic representation of an age – old garden tradition which reached its peak in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). The Garden is characteristic of the private spaces within a Ming scholar’s residence. With its asymmetrical arrangement of rocks and plants, its winding paths and corridors, and the vistas that overlook its courtyards, the Garden emulates the rhythms of nature. Ming dynasty scholars, the elite of their time, lived and worked in their garden, sharing these enchanting spaces with friends and family of all ages. Like any home, a scholar’s garden was filled with energy, but also offered quiet moments for contemplation.” Vancouver Chinese Garden website
