Dr Sun Yat-Sen Chinese Garden

A tranquil break from bustling Chinatown, this intimate "garden of ease" exhibits the Taoist symbolism behind the placing of gnarled pine trees, winding covered pathways and ancient limestone formations.

On your visit, learn how everything in the garden reflects balance and harmony, with the placement of each item having a considered purpose. Soft-moving water flows across solid stone, while smooth, swaying bamboo grows around immovable rocks. As you wander the peaceful paths, notice how dark pebbles are placed next to light pebbles in the paving.

If you visit in summer, the Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden is the scene of musical performances and dances. Every Friday night from mid-July through the first weekend in September, the garden hosts an eclectic repertoire that includes classical, Asian, world, Gypsy jazz, Slavic soul and fusion music.

Practical Info

Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden is easily accessible via public transportation, and it’s only a few blocks away from Gastown and downtown Vancouver. It is also within walking distance of the Millennium Gate, the Chinese Cultural Centre Museum & Archives and the bustling intersection of Pender and Main streets, the heart of Chinatown. High season hours and admission rates are in effect from May 1 to August 31.
