Thanks to an unseasonably warm weekend, expected bloom dates for High Park’s famous cherry blossoms have been pushed up. Sakura in High Park is now predicting the date of first bloom as early as April 20th (aka tomorrow!)
The park’s beloved cherry blossom trees typically bloom during early May. During peak season, scores of tourists and locals alike venture out to the park to catch the first glimpse of spring.
Blooming period typically lasts 16-21 days, meaning there’s not a ton of time to catch the flowers in action. If predictions are accurate, blossom period will take place from April 20th to any time between May 6th to May 11th.
