There’s a new bloom of umbrellas hovering high over the public plaza next to the Canada Line’s Yaletown-Roundhouse Station.

As a tribute to the blooming cherry blossoms, an array of hanging traditional Asian umbrellas in the colours of pink and white were recently installed over Bill Curtis Square by the Yaletown Business Improvement Association.

Over the years, the plaza’s ‘air space’ has been utilized for seasonal public art installations, and the latest installation follows last year’s highly popular multi-coloured rainbow umbrella display.

In all likelihood, this will become one of Vancouver’s Instagram-worthy springtime captures.
