It’s not springtime in Metro Vancouver without rows and rows of lush sakura blossoms fill the streets. Cherry blossoms have already begun to blossom this year and we can’t wait to see more.

The majestic and sadly at-risk birds are staples at Stanley Park. They have been nesting at the iconic park for the past 18 years and just made their return for their 19th year in a row.

Events & Festivals
A number of events and festivals will be popping up throughout the season to take full advantage of the sun. Take your pick from anything between scenic cherry blossom-themed festivals to bustling outdoor night markets hosted at various spots across the region.
On a budget? There’s no shortage of free events happening in the area this season.
Vancouver boasts mountains and several scenic trails just waiting to be explored this spring. As it gets warmer, don’t forget about the awesome spots we have for paddle boarding. Looking for something more laid back? Cycling around the Stanley Park Seawall is always a good idea.
Soak in the city’s famous views with sunny and clear skies floating above your head outdoors over a good meal. More and more eateries around the city will offer patio seating as spring heats up — just decide on the type of view you’d like to literally feast upon.
