9. Stanley Park’s Totem Pole Display, Vancouver
It’s easy to see why this is the most-visited attraction in all of British Columbia—the nine poles, which stand among the trees in the park’s Brockton Point area, are impressive works of art. The park began collecting totem poles in 1920, but many of the original pieces were damaged by the elements and sent to museums for preservation. The most recent addition to the collection was carved by the Robert Yelton of the Sqwamish Nation as a tribute to his mother, one of the last native residents of the park.
