    Burnaby: small park at the SE corner of Central Park. (Imperial St. & Willingdon Ave.) - three Ukons and one Tai Haku. Well, we're not sure about the Ukons - they might have too much green to be true Ukons.

    Downtown: Crab Park, off the north end of Main Street, two trees
    Also
    *There are 6 + 3 young Ukons planted on the median between Pacific Boulevard and Expo Boulevard - please see pictures in Downtown.

    Dunbar-Southlands: 16th Ave, Blenheim to Trafalgar, in the median
    [Edited June 20, 2011 by wcutler]: another Dunbar location:
    A trio of 'Ukon' on Highbury at 31st, see photos

    Fairview: 6th and Spruce, below Chocklit Park
    Also
    *across the walking path from what seems to be called Charleson Park, just off the south False Creek seawall and east of the False Creek School. - please see pictures in Fairview.

    Mount Pleasant: China Creek Park at Clark Dr

    Oakridge: Langara golf course parking area and in and around the course, and two large trees between the golf course and a residential building next to it; also
    Oakridge Mall, on Cambie and outside parking areas, see photos

    Riley Park: Ontario and 19th
    [Edited June 20, 2011 by wcutler]: another Riley Park location:
    Northeast corner of QE Park, near 33rd and Ontario, seven trees, see photos.

    South Cambie: Baillie, 37th to 41st, a 2008 festival favourite

    West End, but reported in the Gyoiko, and Ukon or not? Greenish white doubles, bronze leaves, mid-season thread in the Cultivar IDs forum - on Barclay between Bute and Jervis, south side. This one has too much green to be a true Ukon, but maybe not enough green to be a Gyoiko.
    [Edited by wcutler June 20, 2011]: another location:
    Lane south of Alberni at Gilford, nine trees behind a brick wall, see photos.
