Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden rated tops

A new book by National Geographic has named Vancouver’s Dr. Sun Yat-sen Garden #1 on a list of city gardens around the world. The small, but beautiful garden is rated, for instance, ahead of the Rodin Sculpture Garden in Paris. Only two other city gardens in North America were rated — the Foster Botanical Garden in Hawaii and the Conservatory Garden in New York’s Central Park. The Dr. Sun Yat-sen Garden was the first garden in the Ming Dynasty style that was created outside of China, and is located Vancouver’s Chinatown, near to the city’s downtown.
