Love Lock Sculptures in Queen Elizabeth Park Vancouver British Columbia Canada.
Burrard Street Bridge in Vancouver British Columbia is an unofficial Love Lock Bridge. City work crews repeatedly remove padlocks from the Burrard Street Bridge. Also, the chain link fence just east of the Plaza of Nations on the False Creek seawall is another location of Love Locks.
A love locks sculpture dedicated to eternal love is now in the lookout above the Quarry Garden in Queen Elizabeth Park, Riley Park Vancouver, BC.
The sculpture is designed by Vancouver artist Bruce Voyce and celebrates the shelter that love brings and the union that it forms. It will support several thousand locks on the skirts of each couple.
Keys can be deposited in a box on site and will eventually be recycled or melted down to become part of another sculpture.
A love lock or love padlock is a padlock lovers lock on a bridge or similar public fixture to symbolize their love. Usually, you engrave your names on the padlock, lock it onto the bridge and then throw the keys into the Seine river below below to symbolize their unbreakable love.
Vancouver joins other famous Love Locks locations in Rome and Paris. The Ponte Milvio is a famous bridge in the northern part of Rome, specifically the Della Vittoria district. The bridge became so popular that, despite it’s strong brick foundation, the city feared it might sink from all of the locks.
People still visit Ponte Milvio to lock their padlock to the bridge and declare their eternal love, today.
Paris actually has two Love bridges , the Pont de l’Archevêché and the Pont des Arts, are probably the most well known love lock bridges in the World. One bridge is for “lovers” and the other bridge is for “the love of your life.”
