Olympic Cauldron Review

A four-pronged sculpture towering more than 30 feet, this structure can be found adjacent to the Vancouver Convention Centre's West Building. In 2010 when Vancouver hosted the Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games, it burned with the Olympic flame. It's re-lit occasionally, for Canada Day and other special events. The Cauldron overlooks the Burrard Inlet on Jack Poole Plaza, which is named for the Canadian businessman who led the bid to bring the Olympics to Vancouver. Sadly, Poole died of cancer just one day after the flame for the Olympic torch relay was lit in Olympia, Greece, at the start of its journey to Vancouver.
