Cherry Blossom Watch
Peak bloom was May 6-12 2018. See you April 2019!
Peak bloom was May 6th to 12th 2018. Thank you for following along with Cherry Blossom Watch 2018 - we'll be back next year!

The flowering of the Sakura trees is spectacular, but peak bloom (typically in late April to early May, depending on the weather) only lasts about a week, so keep updated on the progress of the blooms by visiting this page or following us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram! We will be updating the tracker every few days from now until full bloom.

We also have a Cherry Blossom Hotline! Call 647-946-2547 for additional information about bloom predictions.

Learn more about the history of Sakura trees in High Park. It all started back in April 1, 1959, the Japanese ambassador to Canada, Toru-Hagiwara, presented 2000 Japanese Somei-Yoshino Sakura trees to the citizens of Toronto on behalf of the citizens of Tokyo.
