Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Chinese Garden

Map
578 Carrall St., Vancouver, British Columbia V6A 4H, Canada

This classically designed 'scholars' garden in Vancouver's Chinatown was the first of its kind built outside of Asia. Named in honor of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen, the father of modern China, the garden (completed in 1986) was designed to mimic the energy and tranquility of a 15th-century Ming scholars garden. Reflecting principles of Feng Shui and Taoism, the popular Chinatown destination achieves harmony through a balance of opposites. Asymmetrical sprays of rocks and Asian flora are juxtaposedto pleasing effect against twisting paths and tranquil waters.
