In early Spring (weather-dependent of course), the Cherry Blossoms (aka Sakura) in west-end’s High Park, put on a spectacular show.
UPDATE: First blossoms between May 4-6 with Peak bloom between May 9-12 (Mothers Day weekend!)
The Cherry Blossoms in High Park are so beautiful that they attract HUGE crowds, especially if when the weather co-operates.
Families, and those who just love to take photos, go there just to spend time outside enjoying the blossoms as well as the Park (High Park even has a ZOO nearby).
The blooms are only around for a short time (even shorter if high winds and rains are in the forecast), so if you can, try and get out to see Mother Nature at her best.
This is one of Toronto’s best attractions in the spring and costs nothing to see!
So… grab your camera and join the crowds that flock to the park to get that perfect shot. You might even catch a swan or two, if lucky!
Try to GO EARLY if you don’t want a swarm of people in your pictures 😉
There is a website dedicated to the Sakuras in High Park where they predict the budding – usually pretty accurate [website]
