Cherry Blossoms Ready to Pop

It’s time to stop and smell … the cherry blossoms?

Toronto’s High Park – along with 14 other park locations – are seeing an expected bloom of the Sakura trees, gifted to the City of Toronto from Tokyo, Japan.

The High Park Nature Centre says as of yesterday, around 40-60% of the cherry blossoms in High Park have opened up.

The centre says it is on track to reach peak bloom (when at least 70% of the blossoms open) today, April 20th, and lasts anywhere from four to 10 days, depending on the weather.

The trees were gifted to the city 60 years ago; a symbol of friendship from Tokyo after Toronto accepted relocated Japanese Canadians following WWII.
