You can’t not miss the cauldron, you can walk passed it, see it from the tour buses. The Vancouver government could have done so much more with this as the olympics here were so special. Disappointed really as it is what it is and nothing...More

We took a trip downtown a d ended up at the cauldron. It is such a great spot on a summer's night especially if you are doing a smudge. Brought back some memories of the splendor of the Olympics.

The cauldron is sitting in the middle of the plaza with a small plaque that describes it. Wish there was a little more history to point out some of the history of the 2010 Olympics.
