The Mound is a prominent feature of the Sunken Garden. It is a tall limestone outcrop standing above the floor of the Sunken Garden.
When the Vancouver Portland Cement Company operated the Sunken Garden area as a limestone quarry between 1904 and 1909, the limestone was excavated around the Mound, leaving the Mound as a leftover of the quarrying operation.
Here are some historic postcards of the west side of the Mound, a section of the Sunken Garden that was designed by Raoul Robillard:
