Photographer's Note

I shot this at Stanley Park Rose Garden during a maintenance. The faade you see is the Stanley Park Pavilion.

Rose Garden
The Stanley Park Rose Garden was first established by the Kiwanis Club in 1920 "to demonstrate the possibilities of rose culture in Vancouver". The number of roses have increased during the ensuing years with over 3500 plants now on display. A stylish westcoast-inspired arbor sports a charming combination of early blooming old-fashioned rose varieties sharing space with numerous clematis plants giving this structure more than one season of blowsy bloom.
Large floral display beds slope down toward the causeway and up to the Stanley Park Pavilion area with mass plantings of perennials and annuals in summer, and bulbs in springtime. This is the park's epicentre of bloom between June and October and in late March and April.


Pavilion
Nestled amidst the famous Stanley Park Rose Gardens, the Stanley Park Pavilion is Vancouvers preeminent banqueting venue, with the rustic charm of a classic mountain chalet, surrounded by the natural beauty.
It offers four spaces within: The Lord Stanley Ballroom is a spacious and classic turn of the century ballroom; the Rose Garden Tea Room is a warm and rustic space overlooking the Park Gardens and Malkin Bowl; Stanleys Bar is a rustic park lodge bar with a more casual flare, and; the Verandah is like a room on its own, seating up to 200 on a spacious forest patio with bald eagles flying overhead. They can also offer surrounding grounds for outdoor wedding ceremonies.
