Good place for a good laugh--the bronze sculptures are known as A-maze-ing Laughter. You can sit and stare at them for a while; take some photos; have a cup of coffee; stare out into the blue yonder; contemplate on the eternal. After a bit of all that, walk a few metres west and you can look out into English Bay and there is a small stretch of sandy beach called English Bay Beach. On a warm sunny day, it will all look glorious.
Overall, a good place to relax for a few minutes and take some photos with some or all of the laughing bronze figures. If you are so inclined, spend some time on the sandy beach.
Very nice smaal park in eglishway area
Fantastic spot all year round. Bus service down Beach, Denman and Davie St. Lots of local wildlife day and night. Watch out for skunks after dark! The pivotal spot for sunsets and live music from pubs and cafés
While visiting places from my Wife's childhood like the English Bay beach, we came across this art exhibit, and I had to check it out.
Made by a famous Chinese artist, it evokes good feelings and/or laughter, I guess (are the statues laughing WITH us or AT us?) and it worked! For my little group, anyway.
Cool artistry for a cool open-air exhibit, conveniently located literally steps from the beach. This is definitely a must-see!
This eye-catching park is a showpiece of the West End. Brimming with colourful flowers and palm trees, Morton Park celebrates Vancouver’s gentle climate and vibrant spirit. Named for its bounding street, which in turn was named for Vancouver pioneer John Morton, this site’s conversion from housing to park happened sometime after 1910. John Morton was a newly arrived immigrant from Yorkshire, England when he, along with two of his associates, purchased 550 acres of land in the early 1860s. His intention was to build a brick factory and the purchase price of about $1 an acre earned the trio of friends the moniker of “the three greenhorns” as the land was thought worthless. It was John Morton who eventually laughed all the way to the bank when he later subdivided and sold off lots in what was to become Vancouver’s West End. Now the public art amazing laughing statues is a fitting tribute to the founder of the west end.
