The lush green forest, soaring trees and various lakes are reason enough to spend the day meandering along Stanley Park's well kept, well posted trails. Turns out the city has given you another reason: the Stanley Park Environmental Art Project.
Six artists have installed ecologically sensitive art projects throughout the park, and we were lucky enough to stumble upon this massive sphere of ancient wood sitting peacefully between two ends of its former self.
"We wanted to construct something that works within the missing section to accentuate the mass, the length and the essence of the entire ancient tree."
Keep your eyes open though, as some of these installations are set back and off the trail. This particular piece was discovered on the Lovers Walk trail somewhere near the intersection of the Tatlow Walk trail.
