The city also has other cherry blossoms in parks like Trinity Bellwoods and Toronto Island.

Cherry blossoms can also be viewed via an online live stream. In 2020, the city erected barriers around its cherry blossom trees to discourage people from gathering in crowds at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A livestream has been set up to establish an alternative – something that remains in place.

“In addition to the trees in High Park, cherry blossoms will be blooming in other locations around town,” the councilor said. said Jennifer McKelvie.

“Explore a new park or rediscover a favorite, as the Sakura and many other trees will bloom this time of year.”
