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.
