Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden

Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden is a restful oasis in the middle of busy Vancouver. It is the first full Chinese garden constructed outside of China, built in the mid 80s, and financed both by the Chines and Canadian governments as well as private interests. The garden was named in honor of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen, the father of modern China and a visitor to Vancouver on his travels.
