Instead, the cherry blossom trees will be blocked off by fencing and staff will be on scene to prevent crowding. 

"This year, High Park, I'm pleased to say, will remain open throughout the spring. People will be able to walk, or run or bike [...] but we are encouraging people not to flock to the park to see cherry blossoms," stated Tory. 

The mayor is encouraging all residents to instead watch the bloom at home through the City's live stream. Peak bloom is expected to occur around mid to late April.
