High Park Cherry Blossom Season Won't Be Normal This Year

With High Park's cherry blossom season just around the corner, the City of Toronto has revealed that things will look a little different this year. 

In a press conference on Wednesday, Mayor John Tory stated that while the park will remain open, residents will be prevented from gathering to view the blooms.

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.
