In the early hours of 15 December 2006, a powerful windstorm ripped through Vancouver. The city's residents awoke to discover Stanley Park, their most treasured landmark, transformed into a tangle of splintered, fallen trees. Their anguish revealed more than just an attachment to their memories of the park - it marked the end of a romanticized vision of timeless natural space.

In Inventing Stanley Park, Sean Kheraj traces how this tension between popular expectations of idealized wilderness and the
volatility of complex ecosystems helped shape one of the world's
most famous urban parks. Using an environmental history approach: Kheraj not only describes the natural and cultural forces that moulded the park's landscape, he also reveals the roots of our complex relationship with nature. Released to coincide with Stanley Park's 125th anniversary, this book offers a revealing meditation on the interrelationship between nature, culture, parks policy, and public memory.
