Chinese Gardens in Montreal

Chinese gardens around the world have many common features: lakes and ponds with fish, an architectural feature as the main focal point, native greenery, bonsais, stony structures, places to sit and ponder, perhaps even a tea shop and so much more. Many of the features included in the Garden have symbolic meanings as well, for example, the lions at the entrance are meant as a symbol of protection.

Have you ever been to a Chinese Garden? What was your favourite part of it?

Ironically many Chinese Gardens are located in or near the CBD or where there is a main thoroughfare of people and vehicular traffic.

Perhaps this is intentional and adds to the Ying and Yang, as the immediate tranquility one feels upon entering the Gardens is as though you're entering the Forbidden City itself.

The hum of traffic is diluted as you wander through a perfectly manicured landscape that captures tropical plants and flowers that blend synonymously with strategically positioned bridges, lakes, temples, rock formations, scrolls, and trickling waterfalls.

The trickling of water is mesmerising and would have to be my favourite part of the landscape.
The little curved bridge.
Oh wait, that's Japanese, isn't it?
Chinese Gardens have curved bridges too, and I love them too!
If there is a waterfall, I love them. I also like the peaceful sitting features.
I like the general distinctive Chinese look. u Chinese art is quite unique. Once you see it you know.
