Celebrate spring’s arrival with a visit to High Park and participate in the centuries old Japanese tradition of Sakura Hanami, roughly translated as “cherry blossom flower viewing.” The flowering of the Sakura trees is spectacular; peak bloom only lasts about a week, so be sure not to miss it!
May 10, 2013: Only a few cherry blossoms remain on the trees – they have been replaced by green leaves! After today’s rain, likely all petals will have fallen. Do not despair, if you visit High Park this weekend for Mother’s Day, there are pink apple blossoms to see in the park (along Parkside Drive near the High Park Blvd. entrance) and lots of native plants in bloom.
Thank you for watching the cherry blossoms with us this spring – we hope you tune in again next March to track the blooms!
