But come springtime, the city comes alive with stunning pink and white blooms as cherry blossom trees begin to flower. From neighbourhood parks to city streets, these stunning trees are a beloved sight for residents and visitors alike.

If you’re planning to make this a day trip, you should also check out their annual Cherry Blossom festival taking place on April 7th, 2024 at Garry Point Park from 11am – 4 pm.

Home to a number of activities, including a race track and field, Minoru park also serves as a great place to go for a walk and take in the beauty of these pink blooms.

It has also long-served as a wedding venue, complete with a chapel, making it a great spot for pictures.

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.

Even the birds love it.
