In early Spring (weather-dependent of course), the Cherry Blossoms (aka Sakura) in west-end’s High Park, put on a spectacular show.
#StayHomeTO: Due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19 with crowds, the anticipated dates for full blossoms this year (2020) will not be published. The blooms could appear any time between late April-early May.
The City of Toronto has declared High Park CLOSED during the pre-bloom and peak bloom period of the cherry blossom trees because proper physical distancing will not be possible.
FYI: The park is CLOSED (as of April 30, 2020) until the blooms are over (approx 2 weeks – weather dependent)
Experience this year’s cherry blossom season through multiple livestream events and videos, organized by the City.

Don’t even think about trying to sneak a peek – it’s not worth it! Fines will start at $1,000.
Park enforcement City bylaw officers and the Toronto Police will be patrolling the area to ensure that residents comply with the closure.
The High Park Zoo is closed and has not given an opening date.
Please be considerate, do your part and Stay at Home.
During the Cherry Blossom bloom days, High Park is now CAR FREE.
