Named ‘World’s Top City Garden’ by National Geographic, ‘Garden of the Year’ by the Canadian Garden Council and ‘Places that Matter’ by the Vancouver Heritage Foundation, the Classical Chinese Garden is truly a place of urban zen.
First of its kind built outside of China and the perfect place to visit year-round. Its covered walkways and beautiful pavilions protect guests from Vancouver’s famous rainforest conditions! The jade green pond with koi fish, a collection of 100-year old miniature trees and rare tai hu rock imported from China, are some of the delights and secrets this Garden offers.

Getting someone to visit a garden in summer is a snap: we all know gardens are striking in the summer months, with flowers galore. But what about fall? Garden visitors diminish with falling temperatures, as if they’re convinced the show is over as of Labour Day. But it isn’t. There’s still plenty to see in Canada’s public gardens right up until snowfall and even beyond.
