Nothing symbolizes spring like the beauty of a blooming cherry tree! Every year thousands of people flock to parks across the city to take part in the centuries-old tradition of hanami, the Japanese term for flower viewing. Called sakura in Japan, these pretty trees bloom at the end of March to early April and delight visitors who stroll under the pink blossoms.

Most cherry tree locations are easily accessible by TTC.

Etiquette

Climbing the cherry trees, pulling on the branches and plucking off the blooms can damage the trees. Stay on existing trails to protect the surrounding plant-life and to prevent muddy areas.
