Long Description:
Confederation Garden Court

A project of the Capital Improvement District Commission and the government of the province of British Columbia in commemoration of Canada's centennial year

This public space is maintained by the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia, the house of parliament of British Columbia.

Confederation Garden Court is a 600-square-metre paved plaza with a large fountain in front of a 40-metre-long wall. The wall is centred by a waterfall and the Canadian coat of arms, flanked by the shields of the 13 Canadian provinces and territories. The wall originally only had 12 shields, but the shield of Nunavut was added at the north (right) end when the territory was formed in 1999.

Also in the court is a time capsule placed on New Year's Eve 1967.
