One Thursday more…and one weekend more is coming ! Let’s talk about some interesting activities for you.
This Saturday, we are going to Queen Elizabeth Park, located at the geographic centre of Vancouver, at the junction of Cambie Street and West 33rd Avenue.
Full of colors and different flowers,this 52 hectare park is one of the most beautifully maintained public parks in the world. Second only to Stanley Park in annual visits, it receives nearly six-million people a year.
We can find a lot of interesting things there such as:
- Quarry Gardens: specimen trees, shrubs, perennials, bulbs and annuals selected for their foliage, form and flowers. A stream and cascading waterfall
- Dancing Waters: the famous fountain is comprised of 70 jets of water using 85,000 litres of recirculating water.
- Arboretum: Canada’s first civic arboretum. The first plantings were done in 1949. The larger trees are about 60 years old. Among these is the coast redwood, which can grow to be one of the tallest trees in the world.
- Rose Garden:was built in 1967 to commemorate Canada’s Centennial. It contains many rose varieties.
- Sculptures: The park’s most famous is Knife Edge-Two Piece by Henry Moore. There are also four sculptures by Cameron Kerr in the plaza.
This is just some of the things we can do in Elizabeth Park, in Vancouver. You can also play tennis, basketball, rolley hockey and much more.
