- 1100 Melville Street, Vancouver
The Melville Grotto takes up a large part of the plaza at Melville and Thurlow. This large water work has angular tiers of rough concrete ledges which descend to the pool's edge well below the street level. At one end, water flows beneath a foot bridge from the top level, and then down many of the steps into the pool below. In the daytime one can walk down the tiers and steps and find respite from street noises by sitting at the edge of the pool below the street level.
