Eco-sculptures

Eco-Sculpture Hero

This unique program brings together the community with art, education, environment and horticulture while fostering appreciation and long-term support for Burnaby parks.

Eco-sculptures create art from nature in a modern form of horticulture. Distinct from topiary where single plants are pruned to achieve decorative shape, Eco-sculptures use a variety of flowers and plants, set into a metal frame which is packed with soil. This creates a unique mosaic-like image and form, drawing on the selected plants’ unique colouring and characteristics.

Burnaby’s, Eco-sculpture themes are selected for their significance to the community and environmental issues, and involve community members in developing and creating the sculptures. Once created, the Eco-sculptures are displayed throughout the community as a point of pride and tourist attraction in Burnaby parks.

Eco-Sculptures in the Community

Community events take place during the spring, summer and fall. Stay tuned for upcoming 2020 dates!

Get Involved

Burnaby's Eco-sculpture program creates living sculptures to beautify and soften the urban landscape we live, work and play in. Corporate and community support is critical to Burnaby’s Eco-sculpture program. Without it, innovative projects of this scale rarely make that leap of faith and imagination that turns drawing-board dreams into reality.
