Stanley Park's totem poles

One of the places you have to see to experience Vancouver is the famous Stanley park...


The Totem Poles of Totem Park

Situated just off the seawall beside the Brockton Oval cricket pitch are eight totem poles. Each has a story that breathes life into it. Each is connected to the land on which it stands in more than just a physical sense.

In 2001 an interpretive centre was established by constructing a separate structure housing working areas, lots of signage, a gift shop for related items and a refreshment outlet. The totem poles themselves were treated to un upgrade in the landscaping around them. More signage was put in place to deal with the stories related to each of them individually.
