Italian Rain Gardens

Hastings Park at Renfrew

Located on the west side of Hastings Park, this was designed to celebrate the reality that Vancouver is a rainy city and the Italian cultural heritage of the area.

The garden is meant to evoke the mood of a Venice carnival with its classical sculptural decorative features, black and white paving and playful water courses.

Jane Durante -Â “Beautiful, fun, appeals to adults and children equally. Strong concept, excellent execution. It is very expressive of Italian gardens.”
