Discover America Through Postcards

8th Annual -- Fourth week's Finalist

Queen Elizabeth Park, Vancouver, BC, Canada

     On an extinct volcano at the highest point in Vancouver, a carpet of bright flowers lead to a view of Burrard Inlet and North Shore Mountains at Queen Elizabeth Park. Formerly an abandoned quarry marring the city, it's now a 133-acre paradise of rock gardens, bowling greens, ponds and waterfalls.

Learn about:  Queen Elizabeth Park, Burrard Inlet & North Shore Mtns

Did you know...

     In 1928 Vancouver acquired the land ruined by the quarry atop the city's highest point known as Little Mountain. What to do with it? The local tulip association suggested using its very ugliness as a backdrop to beauty by turning the scarred surface into a park of sunken rock gardens. Do you know how the park got it's name? Find out here, and learn more about Burrard Inlet and North Shore Mountains, too.
