Historical Heritage

Each totem pole is unique and has a different tale to tell. Be sure to read the placards about each totem pole. Great photo opportunity as well.

These signify Vancouver and no trip is complete without seeing them. They are so well and intricately coloured and a must visit.

These Totem poles showcase creativity of the natives of Pacific North western territories. Quiet amazed by the different usage of these . It's about 20 min walk from the aquarium.

Walking through Stanley Park the totem poles are nice to stop and look at. There is also a shop where you can purchase items as well. Makes for a nice break while making your way through the park.

Stanley park is filled with beautiful nature and these totem poles are perfect to stand by the tall trees. So many totem poles of all different colours. It takes no time or money to enjoy the beauty of these pieces of art.

This was a great addition to a day spent in the park. I am drawn to all things Native American and their spitituality and felt connected here. Be sure to stop by and see it if you are in the area, you won't be disappointed.

Near to the entrance of Stanley Park lies a place that radiates spiritual energy and serenity-- a place where you have to look up to completely capture the essence of the history of the place and the ingenious people who at one point looked up to the same pillars with magnanimity. The totem poles were more than just perfect spots... More
