Queen Elizabeth Park’s quarry gardens

Named after the Queen Mother, this Vancouver park was established back in the 1930s after the mountain had been quarried for rocks for road building. To cover the eye sore left from quarrying, sunken gardens were established.

I stared down at the larger of the two from a bridge above before I wound my way down to the bottom and crossed the bubbling stream, then explored little quarry garden located below the garden’s only restaurant.
