Classical Chinese Garden  Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. Connecting nature, architecture, art, culture & education. Chinatown, Vancouver. #vangarden

Our penjing are out on display for the summer. Take time to admire these cultural treasures on your next visit -- many of them are over 150 years old!

🔊 Can you hear the gong? The vibrations ripple through the water, calling the koi for lunch. It's very exciting to see the original residents get back into their regular routine and show the ropes to their pond-mates! #OdeToKoi

Over the past five months, we have worked closely with @vanparkboard and @vanaqua to facilitate the safe reintroduction of koi to our pond. Ten koi were released earlier this week, generously donated by @nitobegarden garden. Today, we are thrilled to welcome our remaining original adult and juvenile koi home. Thank you to everyone for all the love and support! #OdeToKoi

The Garden will be closed all day Sunday, April 7 for filming. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please come visit us another day!

Today, we said goodbye to @paulwongprojects 鹹水埠溫哥華 / Saltwater City Vancouver neon. It was the first site-specific piece of the artist's year-long #OccupyingChinatown residency at the Garden.

Every walk through the garden reveals a new view to enjoy. Thank you to Garden visitor @yeayeagogo for sharing this beautiful framed view with us!
