Vancouver's New Magical Floral Wonderland Is Free To Wander This Fall
It is time to follow in Alice's footsteps. This autumn, there is a new whimsical garden that even the Queen of Hearts would love. So get ready to tumble down the rabbit hole, as you will want to experience Vancouver's magical floral wonderland.
Gryphon Development is hosting The Art Of Wonderland until Monday, November 30, at the glass pavilion of former Kerrisdale Lumber.
According to Cody Ma, the Director of Marketing, "It is an experience unlike any other in Vancouver and we want to invite the community into a world of imagination."
Once you step inside, it is like being whisked away to a secret British garden. There are walls of blooming flowers everywhere you look.
Walking around the checkerboard floor, you'll discover gorgeous wisteria trees, supersized sculpted topiaries, and even an eight-foot-tall bronze sculpture of a ballerina.
One thing is for sure; it isn't your average terrace. Instead, you'll feel like you are a guest at one of the Mad Hatter's famous parties.
For example, there is a large table with a tiered floral cake centrepiece.
But everything around it is topsy-turvy. Looking up, you'll find Victorian teacups floating in the air.
Of course, at a tea party, you'll need a drink.
All guests will get a complimentary gift of loose-leaf teas, inspired by the neighbourhood, made by local artisan 05 Tea.
The surreal free experience will be open daily by appointment only. To attend, you'll need to register on the event's website.
After you submit your email, they will get back to you to schedule the time you can visit.
You'll be able to go with a group of up to five of your friends for a private tour. So it is time to decide who you will bring with you.
When you go, you'll want to have your camera ready as there are so many incredible photo opportunities inside.
