Outing - Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden and Park (10:00 AM PST)
Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden is a Ming Dynasty-style garden-home and is the first among its kind to have been built outside of China. It continues to be unique among the world, and offers endless photographic possibilities.  Located at the heart of Vancouver’s historic Chinatown neighbourhood, the Garden shares a city block with the Chinese Cultural Centre, a number of independent shops..  Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Park is the Garden’s next-door neighbour and a public park managed by the City of Vancouver Park Board. Though the park is separate from the Garden, it serves as both extension and complement to the Garden’s design and atmosphere. Keeping with our 2023/24 theme of "Intention", everyone is encouraged to think about shapes and patterns. We will meet outside the entrance to the Garden.  Entrance to the Garden is $16 for adults and $13 for seniors. Parking is a challenge in the area.  The nearest Skytrain station is Chinatown, and it is an easy walk from that station to the Garden.
