Cherry Blossom Watch
Peak bloom has ended!
Peak bloom is over! See you in 2023!

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.

Vehicle-free experience

This year, the Cherry Blossoms will be a vehicle-free blooming experience! There are thousands of visitors to High Park during our peak bloom days, and to maintain a safe experience for all, the park will be closed to vehicles during this time (day and night).

Note: TTC Wheel-Trans vehicles are excepted.
