Contrary to what many know, Richmond has hundreds of cherry blossom trees all throughout the city.

Richmond hosts an annual Cherry Blossom Festival that usually takes place in April, but was unfortunately cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are still hopeful that it will be able to return in 2021, but if not, there are a number of areas where people can still view these beautiful spring flowers and get some pictures without having to leave the city.

These pretty pink blooms are starting to make their debut and we are rounding up the best places to take in all the cherry blossoms in Richmond.

At the edge of the city of Richmond and close to the airport, this park is a popular area to play and take in the views of the dykes. It’s naturally a place that harbours the beauty of nature and so a perfect spot to take in cherry blossoms.

In the middle of Richmond, you can see these pink streets from the cherry blossom petals that have fallen. The full trees are in the park area and are as vibrant as the sounds of the kids playing in the playground.
