578 Carrall Street, Vancouver 604.662.3207 “http://www.vancouverchinesegarden.com” The Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden is an authentic re-creation of a Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) era scholar’s garden. This is the first such re-creation to be built outside of China. The Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden Society was first formed in 1981 as a non-profit society with the intent of bringing together Chinese and Western cultures. Winding pathways take the visitor through an enchanting scene of gardens and courtyards which reflect their Taoist heritage.
