The City of Toronto is learning just how desperate people are to see the cherry blossoms in Toronto this year.
Andrea Gonsalves, a spokesperson for the City, confirmed to Narcity that "additional, sturdier" fences have been installed around the cherry blossoms in Trinity Bellwoods Park after the original orange snow fencing was knocked over by park users.

"The City’s joint enforcement team (including Toronto Police Service) is continuing to visit parks and the waterfront to enforce provincial regulations and respond to complaints, focusing on areas that have traditionally been of greatest concern," Gonsalves said, singling out High Park and Trinity Bellwoods as two of the cherry blossom hot spot areas.

Gonsalves told Narcity that enforcement officers and cops will be stationed in High Park — a popular blossom spot — in order to deter crowding near the fencing. "Similar measures could be taken at Trinity Bellwoods Park if deemed necessary," she added.
