With provincial parks closed and health officials urging Vancouverites to stay close to home, many people may find themselves going on more walks around their neighbourhood than usual.

While we do our best to practice physical distancing, the Vancouver Park Board has been working to make those strolls around our neighbourhood parks more colourful.

The park board says its staff have planted more than 110,000 tulips in parks and gardens around the city.

The city worked with the Dutch Liberation Canadian Society to plant the bright blooms in memory of fallen Canadians in World War II. The flowers also serve as thanks from the Netherlands for Canada’s contributions to the war.

The park board shared a short video of all the blooming tulips in the Mountain View Cemetery.
