In 1985, the governments of Canada and China worked together to create a Chinese classical garden in Vancouver. Fifty-two expert artisans from China spent one year creating the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Garden, which is modelled after the the Ming Dynasty gardens in China. Most of the materials used to make Vancouverís garden were brought from China, including woodwork, large stones and small pebbles. After much work, the Sun Yat Sen Garden opened to the public on April 24, 1986. Next
