High Park’s Cherry Blossom

Junto al Festival de Tulipanes de Ottawa, el Festival de la flor de Sakura o Cerezo Japonés es uno de los eventos más importantes de la primavera canadiense, ya que estos árboles fueron donados por Japón como agradecimiento a la ayuda ofrecida por Canadá durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

Visiting the Japanese Sakura cherry blossom trees in Toronto’s High Park

Last week, on a late, sunny afternoon, we headed down to High Park to pay the blossoming cherry trees a visit.

The beautiful Sakura trees were first donated to Toronto citizens by the Japanese ambassador to Canada, in appreciation of Toronto’s support for Japanese refugees after the Second World War. The most recent arrivals were trees donated in the early 2000s.

The cherry blossom was very pretty, although our experience was somewhat tainted by the sheer number of people that were there at the same time. Obviously everyone else had heard the news that the peak blossom was on Wednesday!
