Wallpaper Description:
In 1910, this site was an isolated acreage of stumps and bush. It was owned by the Canadian Pacific Railway and was leased by the Shaughnessy Golf Club from 1911 until 1960 when the golf club moved to a new location. The railway proposed a subdivision, but was opposed by many citizens. In 1966, the VanDusen Botanical Garden Association was formed to assist the Vancouver Park Board with saving the site. This effort was successful and the land was purchased with shared funding from the City of Vancouver, the Government of British Columbia and the Vancouver Foundation with a donation by W. J. VanDusen, after whom the Garden was named.

Development started in 1971 and VanDusen Botanical Garden officially opened to the public on August 30, 1975.

One has to see this magnificent garden to truly appreciate the beauty of it. I have been fortunate to have been there and there is never enough time to tour the whole garden.
I have friends who volunteer their time especially in the Spring time when they have their Annual Plant sale.

Thank you for sharing this spectacular photo with us.
