It’s the most wonderful time of the year—when a sea of pink can be seen taking over Vancouver streets. The arrival of cherry blossoms in Vancouver has a long-standing history that symbolizes Spring has truly sprung.

Some buds have already started to blossom, but early to mid April is typically the best time to catch them in all their glory.

Check out the best spots to soak up the bright pinks in full bloom this year. You can also learn more about the annual Cherry Blossom Festival here.

It doesn’t matter where you are in Kits, the blossoms seem to follow you wherever you go. Go for a bike ride or walk around the neighbourhood streets to soak up the hint of pink.

Graveley Street between Lillooet and Rupert Street


With cherry blossom trees lining up this street, it’s quite possibly the most scenic area in the city. It’s the perfect backdrop for photos, but because it’s in a residential area—be respectful of people living nearby and don’t overstay your welcome!

East 3rd and Cassiar Street


There are plenty of blossoms to soak up along this gorgeous street—be sure to go for a scenic stroll here and take in all the colours and smells of the season.

Arbutus Ridge

Blossoms for days—they seem like they just go on and on forever, with different shades of pink. This is a magical spot to take in the blossoms when they’re in full bloom—so don’t miss out!

Vancouver’s iconic park is beautiful all seasons of the year, but when the cherry blossoms come out in full force—this is the place to be. Stanley Park is actually 10 per cent bigger than New York City’s Central Park—giving you lots of space to roam around and get the best photos of the buds.

The serene park is painted pink for Spring—full of cherry blossoms for you to enjoy. Take a stroll, get some awesome shots and then stop for lunch at Seasons in the Park for the perfect day spent soaking up the best of the season.
