Yaletown's Secret Garden

(May 06, 2012 )

Article from insidevancouver.ca writes that in Yaletown, that secret green oasis is .39 hectare Emery Barnes Park.  Dwarfed by 20-, 30- and soon-to-be 40-storey condo towers, Emery Barnes officially opened last week: an unlikely island of green in a concrete jungle.

 It’s a gorgeous – if modest – park: one whole block of grassy lawn and bubbling fountains, leafy trees and benches for soaking up the odd rays of afternoon sun that slant through Yaletown’s crowded skyline.
