Zhongshan Park is a quiet resting place in the noisy Chinatown. This kindly "relaxation garden" opens a world with Taoist flavor behind weathered pine trees, winding paths and ancient limestone buildings. Look carefully at the lazy tortoises swimming back and forth, and maybe envy their pleasure.
In front of the garden, there is a statue of the father of the state. In front of the garden, there is a small square with 12 zodiac floor tiles. There are gardens in the south of the Yangtze River, green bamboo carp and money trees. Unfortunately, the management is not good, the ground is not clean, and the R. Sun on the garden wall is missing. Next to the building of a green tile, it is thought to be a memorial hall or cultural center, but it sells stalls goods on the ground. There are some old visitors who are interested in Chinese culture. If only the park could be managed better. Tickets are not accepted now.
Zhongshan Park, located in the Chinatown of Vancouver, is an authentic Suzhou garden. At the entrance of the park stands Mr. Sun Yat-sen's bust. There are often exhibitions of bonsai and paintings. Every day, there are many old people playing chess, singing and dancing here. It feels like a park in China.
We arrived in Vancouver to take part in a team tour of Banff National Forest Park in Western Canada. Before leaving, we made a warm-up tour and visited several small scenic spots in Vancouver, including Zhongshan Park. This park is named in memory of Sun Yat-sen, the father of the country. The architecture and layout of the park are entirely Chinese-style garden structures. It is small and exquisite, as if it had arrived in Suzhou. There are a lot of foreigners and foreigners in the garden. They seem to be very interested in it, but they are also interested in it. They can stay in the courtyard of the south of the Yangtze River without running to China. Why not?
One of Vancouver's favorite scenic spots and the only Zhongshan Park outside China is now divided into two parts free of charge, part of the new building fee, which follows the Chinese style and uses local building materials, and part of the exquisite and modern buildings built by overseas Chinese with materials shipped from China a hundred years ago.
Only after visiting Zhongshan Park did it really reach Vancouver Chinatown. Zhongshan Park, built in the last century, is the largest Ming Dynasty scenic garden outside China. The winding paths, pavilions, pavilions and pavilions, carved beams and painted buildings, are peaceful and peaceful.
The Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden sometimes offers yoga classes in its amazing Ming Dynasty-style scholar’s garden. The rest of the year it is a wonderful meditative space in bustling Chinatown. For the price of admission, you get a guided tour of this peaceful space that maintains a perfect balance of yin and yang. Enjoy a cup of tea and look for the koi fish and turtles in the pond. Also, delight in the blossoming trees in spring and celebrate Chinese New Year in the winter. Yoga classes are usually held in the summer; check the website for dates.
A small park in Vancouver should be funded by local overseas Chinese. The overall construction is Suzhou garden style, pavilions and pavilions, rockery green trees, grey brick and white wall. Although the Chinese don't see it as surprising, it should be a novelty for Europeans and Americans to put it in Canada.
These traditional Chinese gardens are some of the most decorative and well kept on the West Coast. Right in the heart of Chinatown, get away from it all with a walk around the peaceful gardens where you’ll find bonsai trees and placid koi ponds amidst the well worn walkways. The gardens also keep with them a historical significance that will help visitors understand the role of Chinatown in Vancouver’s cultural development. Visit the adjacent Chinese Cultural Centre to get the full story.
